BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Washington Post Fact Checking team released its Top 10 Worst Ads of the 2014 Midterms.

Four of the 10 come from the U.S. Senator's race between Sen. Mary Landrieu and Congressman Bill Cassidy. Both candidates campaigned in Baton Rouge on Thursday with just 30 days until the runoff.

The Post highlighted four ads from the race which included everything from a Cassidy ad saying Landrieu chose illegal immigrants over veterans to an ad by Landrieu supporters claiming Cassidy's loyalty is bought and paid for by billionaires.

"The Washington Post doesn't know a lot about Louisiana, but I think you do," Landrieu said pointing to the press at her event. "You all go look at it and tell me what you think. I'm standing here today very clearly focused on Bill Cassidy's record."

Across town at an event for Cassidy, the congressman said he stands by his ads.

"I accused her of supporting amnesty and then she came out the next week and said she supported a pathway to citizenship to those who came here illegally," Cassidy said. "Our ad was accurate."

Both candidates will square off in a final debate broadcast live on WAFB Channel 9 Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.
