Mary Landrieu for Louisiana (D)

Senator Mary Landrieu became the first woman from Louisiana ever elected to a full term in the United States Senate in 1996. With her 2014 ascent to the Chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Landrieu made history again as the first woman to lead the committee and only the second Louisianian to chair one of the most important panels in Congress.

In 1979, 23-year-old Landrieu was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives, where she served on the powerful Appropriations Committee. After two terms in the House, she served eight years as state treasurer, finding innovative solutions for the state's fiscal problems, including responsible state debt limitations and investments in education.

Landrieu is a moderate Democrat who has made it her mission to fight for the children, farmers, veterans and working families that Washington often forgets.
