BATON ROUGE— Sen. Mary Landrieu is getting a high-profile campaign boost with a visit from former President Bill Clinton, a day ahead of the start of Louisiana’s early voting period.

The Democratic three-term senator faces a tough re-election bid, targeted for ouster by Republicans in their effort to regain Senate control.

Landrieu’s campaign hopes Clinton’s star power at a Monday rally in Baton Rouge can sway undecided voters and drive Landrieu’s existing supporters to vote in the Nov. 4 election. Her main GOP opponents are Rep. Bill Cassidy and retired Air Force colonel Rob Maness.

This is Clinton’s second visit to Louisiana for Landrieu. He’s a popular draw on the campaign trail for vulnerable Democrats across the South, attending events in Arkansas on Sunday and planning a rally in Kentucky on Tuesday.
