Conventional wisdom tells us that Louisiana will go Republican, once again, at the state level for US President. It also suggests that all Louisiana current congressional republicans (not running for US Senate) will romp in November 2016, that new republicans will be elected in current vacancies and that a Republican will become the junior US Senator (replacing David Vitter).
The now-presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has become a statewide lightning rod of sorts in Louisiana politics.
Despite many Republicans throughout the nation still not coming to grips with Trump being the nominee, Louisiana republican Party and their elected leaders are taking a different approach. They, at least publicly fully support him. Yesterday, perhaps due to the signal from the RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, the Louisiana state party, sent out its own notice that it is now time to rally the troops and lead the battle against Hillary Clinton.
How does that adage go?
One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter?
One man’s Lee Harvey Oswald associate is another man’s CIA undercover operative?

There is a proposed new law that is roaring through the Louisiana legislature. Any physical attack on a law enforcement officer, firefighter or emergency services personnel will now be considered a hate crime.
The VP sweeps are starting, the veeps sweeps are starting.
And, who knows, many of the merry men and women, who have denounced the Good Donald, just might be lining up for a nod.
