Vitter, Dardenne, Kennedy, what's going on in Governor race?
Written by 

Dardenne-vitter-kennedyHey what's going on--as Marvin Gaye said. (asked)

Well,  it looks like we may have three Republicans running for governor now that's assuming a few things.  Number one, can David Vitter use the super PAC money--roughly $1.5 million dollars--that has been raising his behalf for either for a state-run or federal?    Can he use that in this election?


It looks like Jay Dardenne is going to run although he hasn't raise a lot of money but he has a way of getting statewide support particularly in the Baton Rouge-New Orleans corridor. 

But David Vitter, should he run, is from Jefferson Parish--he certainly would be able to eat into that space.

Now John Kennedy--John Kennedy and David Vitter have been allies but it looks like he (Kennedy) just might position himself. After all, he  recently announced the amount the money that he has race for statewide campaign. 

Secondly he has been making a lot of noise without actually saying that is going to run. 

This week he sent out an email basically saying "Treasurer John Kennedy commends Gov. Jindal's economic development trip abroad".  

Now when was last time John Kennedy said anything nice about Bobby Jindal?

When was last time they talked?

There is just something going on. 

The text above is a approximate version.  Watch video for the most accurate statement.

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.
