Maness seeks position as most conservative in race
BATON ROUGE - Republican U.S. Senate candidate and tea party favorite Rob Maness is pledging a two-term limit, a home base in Louisiana and a reduced budget for his congressional office if elected in November.
Maness is waging a long-shot campaign against the better-funded Republican contender, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is running with support of the GOP establishment. Both will face incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu in the Nov. 4 primary.
A retired Air Force colonel, Maness is seeking to position himself as the more conservative candidate.
He blasted career politicians in Washington, opposed the White House's $3.7 billion emergency spending request on illegal immigration and suggested Congress should be starting possible impeachment proceedings against the President.
But speaking Monday to the Baton Rouge Press Club, Maness gave few details of policy positions.
