BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Former U.S. Senate candidate Rob Maness says his super PAC is supporting Jeff Landry in the Louisiana attorney general’s race.

Maness, a Republican, created the political action committee after his Senate race loss last year. On Tuesday, he announced GatorPAC would be helping GOP candidate Landry in his bid to oust Republican incumbent Buddy Caldwell.

Maness described Landry as “truly conservative” while saying Caldwell “does not live up to conservative values.”

With limited financing, GatorPAC’s support of Landry won’t necessarily show up in advertisements. But Maness said he’s got a long list of volunteers who will be available to knock-on doors and use other grassroots tactics to tout Landry’s candidacy statewide.

The election is Oct. 24. Also in the race is Port Allen attorney Marty Maley, a Republican.
