BATON ROUGE - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rob Maness is getting campaign help this weekend from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

The Maness campaign says Palin will visit a Jefferson Parish restaurant on Saturday to eat alligator with Maness. The event is a nod to a Maness TV ad that compares his campaign against two members of Congress to facing down alligators in a Louisiana swamp.

Maness, a tea party favorite and retired Air Force colonel, is running against Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu and her chief GOP challenger, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy.

A political newcomer, Maness is considered a long-shot contender on the Nov. 4 ballot.

Saturday's campaign stop will be at Restaurant Des Familles in Crown Point. In addition to the in-person visit, Palin has recorded a radio ad for Maness.
