Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

edwards trinaFormer Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards is approaching 90 years old and hasn’t seemed to slow down a bit.  He remains active, still speaking throughout the state, often accompanied with his young wife and 4-year-old son.  Last year, a Baton Rouge Advocate poll listed him as Louisiana’s most popular governor.

treenDave Treen was sworn in as Louisiana’s Governor 37 years ago. Anyone who knew him noted what a nice guy he was. But Treen’s legacy will not be based on his friendliness. History will treat him well and acknowledge that he was the first, and perhaps only, true conservative Louisiana Governor in the past century.

Poor Congressman Steve Scalise. He should be on cloud-nine having reached the pinnacle of political success by being elected majority whip in the Republican controlled congress.  But out of the blue, he is blindsided by a 28-year-old democratic blogger and law student who ties him to David Duke.  Scalise’s sin?  Accepting a speaking invitation 12 years ago when he was a state representative to a group (located in the district from where he was elected) that has close ties to David Duke.

Mary Landrieu eked out a very slight lead over her major challenger, on Tuesday, election day.
