Kennedy on the defensive

Louisiana Senate candidate John Kennedy has been on the defensive since his Democratic opponent, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), accused him of supporting cuts to Social Security benefits in a recent advertisement.

Kennedy has now aired two consecutive ads responding to Landrieu & rsquo;s attack & mdash; including a new one in which he directly rebuts the charge.

& ldquo;In Louisiana, your word is your bond. But in Washington, they & rsquo;ll say anything, & rdquo; Kennedy says in his new ad. & ldquo;Like Mary Landrieu & rsquo;s ad attacking me on Social Security. It & rsquo;s a lie, and Mary Landrieu knows it. & quot;
