The US Senate race is in the month of August and compared to last year’s gubernatorial race, even with the addition of a number of candidates who have qualified (count them 24), one might wonder, does anybody care?  You remember last year’s politics;  Jay Dardenne, John Bel Edwards, Scott Angelle, David Vitter looking to replace Bobby Jindal.  That seemed to be somewhat of a humdinger, even during early August.

maness siteThe Louisiana US Senate Race is just beginning to attract voters’ attentions.  As a result, we discussed the election with pollster John Couvillon of JMC Enterprises of Louisiana, to get his input.

On Wednesday, we published the first part of the interview, which focused upon the Democratic candidates.  On Thursday, we published part two, which targeted the Republican side of the spectrum of the political spectrum, including one independent candidate who is running for the seat.  Today, we talk about John Kennedy’s challenge as the leading candidate in the existing polls, an analogy with the current Donald Trump campaign, the lack of name recognition of those running against him and more.

Bernie burns 2Perhaps, two of the most contentious, yet exciting elections to take place in Louisiana in modern history was last year's Governor's race--John Bel Edwards versus David Vitter and the 2014 US Senate race in which Republican Bill Cassidy ousted incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu.  This year, there is another major election, come November 2016, for U.S. Senate, to fill the vacancy being left by Vitter, who decided not to run for re-election after losing to Edwards.

The Louisiana legislative session is history. It ended Thursday night, at midnight and now the question is-- what happened?

Well, we raised taxes, again although some say, there was no need to do so.  The Republicans have taken credit for successfully plugging the tax dike.  Some say Governor Johnn Bel Edwards was the loser.  Others claim, no, it is the House of Representatives conservative republicans.  And still, others say it is the taxpayers who actually lost.
