The Louisiana GOP on Saturday made the unusual decision to endorse Rep. Bill Cassidy's campaign to unseat Sen. Mary Landrieu in the state's high-profile Senate race, saying he is the right man for the job and winning the seat is key to taking control of the upper chamber.
Members of the Republican National Committee gathering in Memphis, Tennessee, for their spring meeting are set to join a lawsuit seeking to strike down campaign finance limits and free the GOP to spend unlimited money on get-out-the-vote efforts.

"Specifically, Senator Reid has violated Senate rules that prohibit Members of the Senate from using websites located on the Senate.gov host-domain for partisan political campaign purposes as well as the prohibitions regarding using official resources for political purposes," Mr. Villere wrote. "Therefore, we respectful request that the Committee investigate Senator Reid's misuse of taxpayer resources and sanction him appropriately."
"The campaign activities discussed above implicate numerous Senate runes and must be investigated," Mr. Villere said. "If the investigation confirmed that these activities violate Senate Rules, Senator Reid must be held accountable."
