Washington Post ranks Landrieu, Cassidy ads worst in nation

The Washington Post Fact Checking team recently released its Top 10 Worst Ads of the 2014 Midterms.

Four of the 10 come from the U.S. Senator's race between Sen. Mary Landrieu and Congressman Bill Cassidy, who are now in a runoff for the seat.

The Post highlighted four ads from the race which included everything from a Cassidy ad saying Landrieu chose illegal immigrants over veterans to an ad by Landrieu supporters claiming Cassidy's loyalty is bought and paid for by billionaires.

Both candidates will square off in a final debate, which will be broadcast live on KPLC from 7-9 p.m. on Dec. 1. The election is Dec. 6.
