Mary Landrieu Helps A Man Do A Keg Stand At LSU Tailgate

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) played a vital role in an Louisiana State University fan's keg stand on Saturday.

Yes, you read that right -- Landrieu, who's facing a tough midterm challenge from Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), got in on some serious tailgate action ahead of the Tigers' game against Mississippi State on Saturday.

Before the game, Landrieu tweeted a photo of herself meeting LSU students:

The race between Landrieu and Cassidy is one of the tightest ahead of the elections, with strategists in both parties predicting a runoff. (Louisiana has a "jungle primary," meaning all candidates run in the general election. If no one exceeds 50 percent of the vote, the top two candidates head to a runoff.)

Unfortunately, Landrieu's pre-game fun didn't help her team nab a victory. LSU was defeated by Mississippi State 34-29.
