Term-limited Democratic state Sen. Rob Marionneaux said Friday in a released statement that he will not be a challenger to Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal's in this fall’s re-election bid.

"After much thoughtful consideration and prayer, my family and I have come to the conclusion that this is not the time for us to embark on a campaign for Governor of the Great State of Louisiana," Marionneaux said in a statement issued by his office.

 The decision means the only person willing to combat Governor Jindal is Democrat Tara Hollis,  a school teacher.

’s decision came one day after a poll conducted by the Louisiana Republican Party which found that  58.5 percent would vote for Jindal if the election were held today and 8 percent would vote for state Marionneaux.

Marionneaux had commissioned a different poll that reported that the results were essentially the same but that Marionneaux could win if a set of negatives about the Governor as well as positives about Marionneaux were disseminated to the voters.

Marionneaux’s decision could have a major bearing upon the future of any Democrat running against any Republican for statewide office this year.

Some Democrats were hoping that Marionneaux would lead the ticket which could stimulate the Democratic voters and independents to go to the polls on election day and to vote for Democratic candidates.  

So far, the only Democrat with statewide name recognition is Caroline Fayard, who ran for Lt. Governor last fall, but lost to Republican Jay Dardenne.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
