National GOP pulls ads out of LA-Senate

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

LA was the GOP's last hope of picking off a Democratic Senate seat. But they've just waved the white flag:

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has decided to pull its television advertising out of Louisiana, a decision that drastically reduces the party's chances at its lone takeover opportunity in this election cycle.

The ads, according to buy information obtained by The Fix, will end next Tuesday -- two weeks before the Nov. 4 election between Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) and state Treasurer John Kennedy (R).

Update: And CNN has just moved VA to Obama-Lean, giving Obama over 270 EVs for the first time. See Monday's Presidential Forecast here.
