JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

People watching the Saints game in Louisiana today will be treated to the first endorsement ad President Obama’s cut this general election season. In the segment, Obama endorses Cedric Richmond, who’s challenging Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) to represent Louisiana’s 2nd District, encompassing most of the city of New Orleans.

According to Real Clear Politics the seat leans Democratic, and a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee poll last month had Richmond up 10 points over Cao.
