Will former The Advocate publisher, John Georges, run for Louisiana governor?
 

georges2What will Georges do?

There has been some recent speculation that John Georges, might run for Louisiana Governor.  The Baton Rouge Advocate reported that he has turned over the Publisher reigns to Dan Shea.  There have been some other political talk.

 

This was the question Jeff Crouere raised on the WGSO-Bayoubuzz Radio Hangout today.  Here is part I of that conversation between Crouere and Bayoubuzz publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky:

SABLUDOWSKY: Well I think the fact that there was a poll that he and others commissioned in there was a question in there and he was competitive with David Vitter, I think it raises the question as to what his intent is. How well will he do well first of all, he would  shake things, for sure.  What would happen to John bel Edwards? Well that's something that we don't know but then again would have to wait and see if he, Georges, is willing to put his money down like he did last time and run like Donald Trump is doing.

CROUERE: He didn't do very well back in 2007 though.  That was not a very successful run nor in 2010.  So he doesn't have a really good track record

SABLUDOWSKY:Right, no he didn't, but I think that people, would have a different feeling about him.  The poll indicates that, or at least the poll that he commissioned indicates  that.  And there's no  question about that for as far as I'm concerned.  He's pretty much has beaten the Times Picayune's butt across the state.  And take the lowly Advocate, who read it? I know I read it, But I read online.So I think he's done a very good job with that and I think that people are going to say, just like people are saying about Trump,, he's a businessman and he knows how to get things done.

CROUERE:But he tried twice and maybe now people would see him in different light. Hey I encourage them to run. I think, the more the merrier

SABLUDOWSKY:If he does run, then certainly the question is he going to run as a Democrat, Independent, He probably would run as a Democrat or Independent. 

CROUERE:Well, if I were advising him and I'm not, I would advise him to run as an independent.  Because people are disgusted with both parties, you see that on a national level, Here in Louisiana, the Louisiana Democratic Party is like poison.  And the Republicans have benefit, not from anything the Republicans have done,The just benefited.  My interest is in the people of Louisiana.  I'm out there for you.  John Bel Edwards already has the Democratic Party endorsement anyway. So, that's what I'd recommend.

SABLUDOWSKY:If he does, would he appear that he would follow the party based upon his own political needs, that's going to be what the question is, I think.  Either you're a Republican or Democrat the reason why chose to be an independent before is because the Republicans have chosen Jindal. Reason why he became a Democrat, he pretty much needed to do so when he ran for mayor of New Orleans, So what's the reason, would you buy that more?  , Would you really accept it more...

CROUERE:If he says, I've been successful with the Advocate, I've come at it as a businessman, Not as a partisan I've come at it as someone who has diagnosed a problem and solve it, That's what I would do for the state of Louisiana. I can't do it to the party system  because both parties have gotten us into the mess were in.   We have a fiscal crisis here, we need independent leadership. I think that that's what Louisiana needs, He can make that kind of case, The fact that he's been independent before, sort of helps him. But like you said, his most recent experience as a Democrat, And I don't know as an independent and there could be an opening for him, there, possibly.

SABLUDOWSKY:Sure. I think you make a lot of sense, I really do
