BATON ROUGE - Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy both vowed to gear up for their runoff challenge as results continued to come in Tuesday night in the Louisiana midterm Senate race.

Landrieu pulled 42 percent of the vote while Cassidy picked up about 40 percent.

Tea party-backed retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness came in with 14 percent, the only other candidate to pull more than one percent.

The runoff would be held on Dec. 6. This race drew national attention as one of several which could help Republicans gain control of the Senate.
