Madisonville, LA – Col. Rob Maness (USAF, ret.), the conservative candidate and non-politician running against Mary Landrieu for the United States Senate announced on Facebook that he has now raised over $1 million in his bid to unseat Landrieu in the 2014 Senate race.
Col. Rob Maness is the conservative candidate and only non-politician running for United States Senate in Louisiana in 2014. Since announcing his campaign, Rob has visited all 64 parishes and put over 50,000 miles on his truck during his travels. He has also been endorsed by Sarah Palin. His message is one of liberty, prosperity, and certainty — principles that career politicians have routinely betrayed and that only a citizen-legislator can be trusted to support.
Col. Maness served in the Air Force for 32 years and rose from the lowest enlisted rank at age 17 to his appointment as Wing Commander and promotion to full Colonel. After his military career, he worked as a utility and energy executive. He resigned this position in 2013 to run for the U.S. Senate. He holds master’s degrees from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, the Naval War College, and the Air Command and Staff College.
