Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is bringing her "simple-minded" self on down to Louisiana this weekend to join Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson in helping support Rep. Bill Cassidy's race to unseat Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, CNN reports:

Palin and Robertson will attend a GOP unity rally for Cassidy on Saturday afternoon in Monroe, Cassidy's spokesman confirmed. The story was first reported by Politico.

It's not the first time Palin has palled around with the "Duck Dynasty" clan. Last year she spent time with the family in Monroe while she was on a book tour.

Landrieu won 42% of the vote in last week's election compared to Cassidy's 41%. State law requires a December runoff if no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote.

Senator Mary Landrieu Personally Believes in Marriage Equality But Won't Back It Because of Louisiana's Anti-Gay Laws

Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), one of the four senate Democrats yet to back marriage equality, told CNN that she personally believes in it but won't take an official position because Louisiana has laws against gay unions:

LandrieuLandrieu told CNN National Political Correspondent Jim Acosta in an interview Friday that she personally believes "people should love who they love and marry who they want to marry," but that her obligation rests with the people of Louisiana who elected her.

"My state has a very strong constitutional amendment not only against gay marriage but against gay partnerships. So I'm looking at the people of Louisiana trying to represent their interests," she said.

The other Democrats besides Landrieu who have yet to evolve are Tim Johnson (D-SD),  Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Mark Pryor, (D-AR).
