Mark Levin, who hosts "The Mark Levin Show" on Newstalk 96.5 KPEL Monday through Thursdays from 6-9 p.m., is the latest prominent conservative to endorse Republican retired Colonel Rob Maness in his bid to oust incumbent U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu in her bid to win reelection to the Senate.

"As we saw with Dave Brat's historic win against Eric Cantor in Virginia, when Mark Levin endorses a candidate, it can have a game-changing effect on a campaign," says Maness. "I am extremely humbled and grateful that someone like Mark Levin, who has been one of the defining voices of the grassroots conservative movement, has put his name behind my campaign of conservative #SolutionsForUs."

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, Family Research Council founder Tony Perkins and RedState's Erick Erickson are among the latest conservatives to endorse Maness.

Mark Levin: "All right, ladies and gentlemen, I've been weighing this one for quite a while now.  There's actually one election left in three weeks in Louisiana that involves a few Republicans running and of course landfill-Landrieu running and there could be a run off among the top two candidates if neither one gets fifty percent.  You got landfill-Landrieu, you've got a guy named Cassidy who is a through-and-through RINO and then you've got a conservative running by name the name of Rob Maness.

"Rob Maness, I'm going to endorse you for the Senate in Louisiana and I hope all my brothers and sisters listening in the state of Louisiana, residents of the state of Louisiana will take a good look at Rob Maness - he is the conservative in the race.

"I know it's an uphill fight but quite frankly ladies and gentleman, I'm used to them. The polling shows him behind, but we're always behind.  But anyway Maness for Senate in Louisiana, that's my final endorsement in these these races and it's doable if the people of Louisiana want to conservative up against Landrieu, who can in fact beat Landrieu and who will be a conservative in the U.S. Senate.

"So, once more, I endorse Col. Rob Maness, retired, for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana, that'll be a surprise to him and his supporters cause I have given it a lot of thought over the weekend, no prodding by anybody and just decided to do so on my own."
