Vitter overwhelms, Jindal’s back, Landry gets GOP back, LABI criticized
 

vitter-teaLouisiana political shorts for today: Vitter overwhelms, Jeff Landry gets the GOP endorsement, Jindal is back on the trail and some political tweets. 

 

VITTER

Vitter has an overwheming lead in fundraising, although in the most recent poll, he barely etches out a lead over Jon Bel Edwards in the general election.  However, when factoring in where the outstanding votes are, it is definitely Vitter's race to lose. 

After the second quarter deadline David Vitter campaign stated in an email today that they lead all candidates with $5 million to a combined $3.6 million for John Bel Edwards, Scott Angelle, and Jay Dardenne.

The campaign also contends that the PAC supporting Vitter’s campaign, The Fund for Louisiana’s Future, reportedly has $4.3 million cash on hand and raised more than $1 million this quarter. 

LANDRY

The Republican Party of Louisiana, today, announced its official endorsement of Jeff Landry for Louisiana Attorney General.  “Jeff Landry is THE Republican in the Attorney General’s race,” Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere said. “The Republican Party of Louisiana and I encourage all conservatives in Louisiana to vote for Jeff Landry in October.”

JINDAL

After staying a few days in the State of Louisiana due to a very high profile and horrible killing in Lafayette, Bobby Jindal is back on the campaign road with interviews and travel planned up the east coast.

An interesting quote from an article in the Chicago Tribune:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, R, who presides over a state with a high rate of gun violence and a low quality of gun laws, is shocked. "We never would've imagined it would've happened in Louisiana or Lafayette," he said after last week's movie theater shooting in Lafayette, La.

Jindal responded with a kind of gunner jujitsu, calling for other states to emulate the sloppy standards of Louisiana, which has loose gun laws and has largely failed to supply mental health records to the criminal background check system, although a law signed by Jindal now requires it. Louisiana has the nation's second-highest rate of death by firearm.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
