The race for the U.S. Senate seat is now a dead heat with Landrieu and Terrell separated by only one percentage point in a cross-section of Louisiana registered voters.

As is often the case, the outcome will hinge on a combination of African American turnout and the percent of the white vote Landrieu is able to obtain.
