Republican US Representative John Fleming announced he will not enter the US Senate Race Against Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu because he doesn't want to divide GOP support.
Fleming's announcement comes after his colleague US Representative Bill Cassidy jumped into the race earlier this week.
Fleming says the top priority is ousting Landrieu. He says to enter the race would risk a contest between two republicans and threaten the ability to defeat the democratic incumbent.
Cassidy has been the only announced Republican for the senate election next year.
