Louisiana Politics: Vitter, Davis, Scalise Get Alliance Nod After Forum In New Orleans
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

New Orleans, La.--The Alliance For Good Government from St. Tammany, Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard Parishes have voted to endorse Republican David Vitter for U.S. Senate, Republican Steve Scalise for the 1st Congressional seat and Republican Kevin Davis, President of St. Tammany Parish for Lt. Governor.

The vote was taken behind closed doors after forums for each position.

The Alliance vote is a significant win for Senator Vitter,  who as Congressman, represented Jefferson and St. Tammany Parishes before being elected to the Senate position for Louisiana.

The Alliance Forum was the first opportunity that voters had to watch Vitter and Democrat Congressman Charlie Melancon discuss the issues from the same podium.

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.
