Who Will Face Dardenne In Louisiana Lt. Gov. Race?
Written by 

Jay DardenneRepublican Jay Dardenne won a special election  for lieutenant governor on November 2, 2010, defeating Democrat Caroline Fayard by a 57-43% margin.
But fellow Republicans don’t appear willing to give him a free pass to a full term.
Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, who rose to national prominence for his criticisms of the handling of the BP oil spill, will likely run against Dardenne.
Nungesser is an outspoken, seasoned politician, who could make life miserable for Dardenne.

That may not be the worst of it.  Politicos are still wondering what New Orleans businessman John Georges is going to do with the $10.1 million he has placed into a campaign fund.  Will he decide to run for lieutenant governor?
And Republican Scott Angelle, former interim lieutenant governor, is also giving consideration to the race.
The state’s number two position is getting a lot of attention because no one is sure what plans current Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal may have for the future.
Some state legislators are reporting that Jindal is meeting more defiance in the Legislature and is not a happy camper these days.  And, as we have seen, Jindal is not prone to stay in a position too long.
If Jindal should vacate the governor’s office, the lieutenant governor takes over as the state’s top official.
While Jindal has no declared opposition as of this time, it appears other statewide elected officials could find themselves with opponents on the ballot.
Secretary of State Tom Schedler will be opposed by Democrat Fayard, and Democrat-turned Republican Attorney General Buddy Caldwell will see opposition from former Republican U.S. Rep. Joseph Cao of New Orleans.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
