Kennedy-interview2Unless you just parachuted in from Mars, you've probably seen media reports about the retirement bill recently passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor (Act 859) that boosts the retirement benefits for a small number (allegedly two) of Louisiana State Police Troopers. The benefits-boosting provision, again according to media reports, was added to an unrelated bill on the last day of the legislative session by a six-person conference committee that did not meet publicly. All six of the conferees say they did not sponsor the amendment.

PAC-MAN-VITTERFor many Democrats in Louisiana, particularly those still active in party politics, the ultimate goal is to win the Governor’s race.
The year 2007 became the watershed year in the state for electing democrats for statewide office. Currently, the Democratic Party, which had dominated statewide offices prior to that year, has only one statewide elected official, Mary Landrieu, and that could change this November.

vitter-teaThis week, Louisiana and the nation were treated with some big political news, not that it was unexpected.

U.S. Senator David Vitter decided to enter the Louisiana Governor’s Race although he apparently will keep his US Senate position.

vitter-melanconFor months, Louisiana political observers have been waiting for David Vitter to make it official. Today, he confirmed the worst kept political secret in state history. In 2015, Vitter will run for Governor of Louisiana. The advantage for Vitter is that he does not have to relinquish his U.S. Senate seat to run for Governor. He also has universal statewide name recognition and is leading in pre-election polls.

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?
