Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal lashed out at Rand Paul yesterday for a comment he made on Morning Joe.
Hours later, some of his opponents returned fire.
The Louisiana House Republicans and the Louisiana Democratic Party’s executive director (speaking for the party), do not see eye-to-eye as to what occurred today in Baton Rouge in cobbling together a budget.
The Louisiana Democratic Party has continued to take swipes at Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, presumably, to weaken him in their efforts to seek negotiating opportunities as he enters into his final legislative session starting Monday.
The debate over what some people say will be a $1.4 billion budget shortfall, cuts and higher education (once again), and a governor using state money to help launch a presidential run can be heard often at the state capitol in Baton Rouge. Today, that conversation is being heard overseas, in London.
The city of Shreveport is not the only one who has a problem with white flight. So does the Louisiana Democratic Party.
Preliminary voting statistics reveal that U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, garnered 78% of the white voters while incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu received only 22%.
In the wake of a massive loss and the defeat of the only statewide elected Democrat, the state leader of the party is delightfully delusional about what happened.
The Louisiana Democratic Party has released a video that compares the record of President Barack Obama and that of Bobby Jindal while linking the Louisiana Governor to the Republican US Senate candidate Bill Cassidy.
Although elections are supposed to be about individual candidates, both the Louisiana Republican and the Louisiana Democratic parties are pursuing other strategies—tie local candidates to other local and national personalities and messages.
It appears no coincidence that the Louisiana Democratic Party released a attack ad against Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, right in time for the close of the Louisiana legislative session and in time for the Republican Leadership Conference, this weekend in New Orleans.
Louisiana politics revs up today with issues involving Obamacare, Harry Reid, Elbert Guillory (who recently switched from Democrat to Republican), Common Core and dueling press releases from the Cassidy and Mary Landrieu camps..and more.
