Louisiana Politics: Kershaw Backs Nungesser, Jindal, Perry, GOP Debate, Election Forums
Written by 

Sammy Kershaw


Country music star Sammy Kershaw officially endorsed Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser for Lt. Governor.  Kershaw, a Republican candidate in last year's Lt. Governor's race, won 31 parishes in the primary election.  Kershaw, a Republican from Lafayette, made his announcement via a video, where he laid out his reasons for supporting Nungesser.


Bobby Jindal and Rick Perry

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal made national news yesterday by announcing his support of Texas Governor Rick Perry. 

Bad timing?

Last night, the Republican Party-Tea Party held its debate on CNN and some of the news programs and talk radio programs are questioning whether Perry, who skyrocketed to the top of the GOP Presidential race pole will survive that spot.

Perry was the focus of much of the debate with attacks about taxes and Texas, his stance on illegal immigrants, mandatory injection of a shot to prevent venereal disease and more.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
