edwards-trina-news-conferenceAnother 6th District poll
On the heels of the poll we reported on last week on the race for the 6th District Congressional seat being vacated by Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, comes another one.

The poll we reported on last week was conducted by Darrell Glascock of the Glascock Group. This one was conducted by JMC Analytic s for the campaign of Paul Dietzel III, one of the candidates.
The poll had Democrat Edwin Edwards in first place with 27% of the vote. Dietzel came in second with 12%, and state Sen. Dan Claitor was third with 7%.
Pollster John Couvillon said that other candidates failed to exceed 5% each. They are attorney Cassie Felder, former Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority Chairman Garret Graves, physical therapist Craig McCulloch, and state Rep. Lenar Whitney.
Couvillon pointed out that while Edwards seems assured of a runoff spot, none of the scenarios surveyed showed him being able to win.
However, Edwards ran the best with white voters (20%) and black voters (57%).
So far, the former governor is the only Democrat in the race, while there are seven GOP candidates.
A boost for Cyber Corridor
Louisiana’s I-20 Tech Corridor will benefit from $757 million inserted in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget for FY2015.
U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, chair of the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, was responsible for the significant level of funding for cybersecurity programs.
Landrieu said the funding will help grow the I-20 Tech Corridor, create cybersecurity jobs, and help keep the nation safe from cyber attacks.
The funding also includes $15.8 million for cybersecurity education programs like the one the Cyber Innovation Center in Bossier City has been operating as an integral part in the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to develop a future skilled workforce.
“With innovative and strong universities, the third-largest Internet Service Provider in the country, and the Cyber Innovation Center, Louisiana’s I-20 Tech Corridor is leading the way to build the high-skilled workforce and warriors we need to protect this country from ever-increasing cyber threats,” Landrieu said.
Last month, Landrieu and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson traveled along Louisiana’s I-20 Tech Corridor and toured Century Link in Monroe and the Cyber Innovation Center in Bossier City.

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.
