Democrat Hollis, Climbs In Louisiana Governor’s Race Vs. Jindal, Where’s Georges?
Written by 

Tara Hollis Democrat Tara Hollis has qualified in Baton Rouge to run for Governor.

The odds-on favorite is incumbent Republican Bobby Jindal.  In addition to Hollis, perennial candidate Cary Deaton, also a Democrat, has filed his papers today for the top state job.  On Tuesday, three minor candidates qualified for the spot.

 Another possible candidate, as reported by Bayoubuzz on Tuesday is John Georges, the multi-millionaire from New Orleans who lost in his first bid for Governor in 2007. 

Hollis, a school teacher is from Haynesville Louisiana.

Should Georges enter the race as a Democrat, one interesting question that might emerge is whether the Louisiana Democratic Party which has not fielded a candidate in any statewide race this year other than the Governor’s Race, so far, would support any one candidate to defeat Jindal and if so, which one.

The question might be moot should Georges not qualify by tomorrow afternoon and should no other Democrat run for the Governor’s Office.

It has been reported that Jindal has raised over 13 million dollars for his campaign run and Hollis has raised less than 5,000.

Georges has essentially funded hisown run for Governor in 2007 but did raise other’s people’s money in his bid for New Orleans Mayor, a race won by Mitch Landrieu

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.
