Popular Treasurer and recent party-switcher John Kennedy (R) will run against endangered Sen. Landrieu (D). The first poll covering the race is a Zogby poll* of adults in mid-October that puts Kennedy ahead 45% - 38%.
There are rumors that Karl Rove was instrumental in recruiting Kennedy to switch parties and run. No other major Rs have shown much interest in running. Thus, unless a major change occurs, this will be a Kennedy v. Landrieu race and easily the best R pickup opportunity in 2008.
*Not a suspicious Zogby Online Poll.
