What do two of the most highly recognized Louisiana politicos over the past few decades think about the upcoming Louisiana US Senate race?
Former Louisiana State official Jim Brown and Bernie Pinsonat joined Stephen Sabludowsky in a Facebook Live event, on Wednesday afternoon.
Brown and Pinsonat have personally been involved, one way or another, in more elections than most here in Louisiana.
Their respective takes:
Pinsonat, a Pollster and President of Southern Media and Opinion Research said he is about to do a poll and the previous polls are relevant but the candidates are not well known. Currently, there are 24 candidates with only a handful having any real name or face recognition, statewide.
He also said so far, perhaps due to the lack of money, or interest, there has not been much focus on this important election. He noted that the Congressmen who are running (Republicans John Fleming and Charles Boustany) come home telling what they have done for the voters, but they are not well known throughout the state.
Brown said there is a lot of interest in Louisiana around the nation. Brown, who is currently in North Carolina said everybody wants to know what is going on in Louisiana. he said that the importance of the election might come to a head later this year if it turns out that the control of the uS Senate could be involved.

In 1986, United States President Ronald Reagan authorized military aircraft to unleash a torrent of bombs in Tripoli, Libya to send a strong message to Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The attack was in response to Gaddafi’s involvement in the terrorist bombing of a Berlin disco that resulted in the death of American soldiers.
