Mitch Landrieu Say "No" to Senate Run

In an announcement today, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu has decided against running for the Senate seat that will become open when Sen. David Vitter steps down at the end of his current term.

"We are in the midst of one of the greatest comeback stories this country has ever seen, but my work here in New Orleans is not yet done. In this time of unique challenges for our city and our state, I believe I can best serve our people by finishing the job I started five and a half years ago," Landrieu said Thursday (Dec. 4) in a statement. "Therefore, I will not be a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2016."

In "comeback stories", I'm assuming Landrieu means not paying firefighters due money, removal of historical monuments in the City of New Orleans and the growing crime problem in the city.  If so, then yes, he's doing one hell of a job in a "comeback story".
