If this provides a boost to Landrieu’s endangered re-election effort, by next weekend Kay Hagan will be officiating a beer pong contest at a UNC frat house:

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) was spotted helping a man do a keg stand at a Louisiana State University tailgating event on Saturday.

A photo from the event appears to show Landrieu—one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents this year— holding the keg’s spigot while a young man dressed in the Tigers’ purple and gold does a handstand on the keg and other participants hold his legs. A crowd of onlookers cheers him on.

A source close to the campaign said the man was in his late 20s and was enjoying a tailgate with his friends and family. The source also said his father was at the tailgating party with him.

Public service:

The best part is that if Landrieu is questioned about it she can simply say it was a photo shoot for an Obamacare ad:
