BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man who has never run for office is throwing his name in the hat for next year's US Senate race.

Rob Maness, a retired Air Force colonel from Madisonville, said he plans to run against incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu because of her support of President Barack Obama's policies.

Landrieu, who is in her third term, will also be facing Congressman Bill Cassidy in the November 2014 election.
