Scalise vs. Landry Due To Louisiana Reapportionment?
Written by 

Many are now opining that Jeff Landry should be gearing up to take on Dr. Charles Boustany after redistricting drew Landry's home into Boustany's district:

Yes, we're aware that Landry's home in Iberia Parish is inside of the reconstituted LA-7. But what many of the analysts are failing to recognize is that you needn't live in your Congressional District to be a qualified candidate:


§1275.  United States senator and representative in Congress; qualifications

A. No person shall be a United States senator who has not attained the age of thirty years and who has not been a citizen of the United States for nine years and who is not, when elected, an inhabitant of this state.

B.  No person shall be a representative in Congress who has not attained the age of twenty-five years and who has not been a citizen of the United States for seven years and who is not, when elected, an inhabitant of this state.

And as we see from the new map (if approved by Justice), Jeff Landry's political base in Terrebonne and LaFourche parishes falls not in Boustany's current district, but in Steve Scalise's wrap-around-New Orleans district. In fact, 3 of the largest parishes from the old LA-3 now fall in LA-1. And with LA-6 (Cassidy's old district) and LA-2 (Richmond's old district) eating up the River Parishes portion of LA-3, Scalise now carries the largest portion of former Landry voters. 

Fascinating, isn't it?

So, shouldn't Jeff Landry be saying "Buona sera" to Mr. Scalise? Imagine the two titans of ignorance facing off. Inland Sicilian Suburban Republican Steve Scalise versus coastal Cajun Jeff Landry.
