Crouere Looks At Louisiana's Lt. Governor's, Senate and Congress Elections
Written by  {ga=JeffCrouere}

jeffcrouere_150_200What will happen this November when republicans, independents and democrats clash in a number of Louisiana elections ranging from Lieutenant Governor to Congress to local battles/

Radio talk show host, political consultant and columnist, Jeff Crouere responds to these questions:

Were you surprised with the results in the Lt. Governor’s election?  If so, how were you surprised and if not, why not?

I was not surprised. The two candidates with the most money made the run-off. Usually, in Louisiana, a runoff features one Democrat and one Republican.

What do you think that both Dardenne and Fayard must do now over the next month?

Dardenne is in the driver's seat. Fayard must appeal to Republicans and Independents to compete. Most of the losing candidates will endorse Dardenne.

What impact, if any do you believe the Lt. Governor’s election will have on the US Senate race and the other Congressional races?

Vitter will help Dardenne get out his vote, while Melancon will help Fayard and other Democrats like Cedric Richmond in the 2nd district.

Any early predictions in the 3rd Congressional District election?

Jeff Landry is the strong favorite in the 3rd district.

What about the other Congressional races?

The turnout was only 22 percent on Saturday, but I am confident it will be higher in the 30 percent range on November 2.

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.
