Getting Out the Vote in Louisiana

The 2002 midterm elections finally end Saturday as Louisiana voters go to the polls in a runoff election for the U.S. Senate. The incumbent, Democrat Mary Landrieu, failed to get a majority of the vote in November. Now she faces a strong challenge from Republican state elections commissioner Suzanne Terrell. Polls suggest a dead heat. NPR's Mara Liasson reports.
