Rendell: Landrieu Told The Truth, the South Is Racist

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union With Candy Crowley,” former Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA) backed up comments from Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) attributing President Barack Obama’s unpopularity in Louisiana to racist southerners.

Rendell said, “When President Obama was running in the primary, I said there are places in Pennsylvania where he is not going to get votes because he’s African-American everyone came down on me, but it’s the truth, it didn’t hurt me a bit, and it won’t hurt Mary because she is a truth teller.”
