Imagine the next Louisiana gubernatorial candidate making this campaign speech pronouncements:
“For too long, our state’s leaders have only looked out for themselves and their own self-interests”.
As Louisiana ponders over how it will balance a budget with a $1.6B hole, the nation is wondering who might have a good chance to be the next President of the United States.
Looking at a just-released CBS Poll, the news for the Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, is not great, but not horrible, either.
With today’s big endorsement of U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) by his colleague U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), the attention of state political insiders will turn to the big race to replace outgoing Governor Bobby Jindal. Paul’s endorsement will give more momentum to Vitter who has gotten off to a strong start in his race for Governor.
Like everybody else, putative Louisiana gubernatorial candidates struggled with offering solutions to the state’s tremendous roads and bridges backlog of $12.3 billion, if their discussion of this topic at a forum designed for that purpose conducted last week indicates anything.

The race is on...
According to LaPolitics.com, it is official. Republican PSC Chairman Scott Angelle is running for Governor.
Will he and for what?
Columnist Tom Aswell of the Louisiana Voice has interestingly pointed out that Scott Angelle, the current Public Service Commissioner, just might be considering a run for Louisiana Governor or Lt. Governor.
With Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal trying to make a presence in the GOP Presidential scene, at least, according to numbers from CNN/ORC, he’s “nowhere” not even on the track.
The Louisiana legislature is entering into its third week of the annual legislative session. What is happening? What are the issues being discussed by the state government.
It could be the most recognized American song worldwide. Go to a small Asian community were little or no English is spoken. Then start humming “You Are MySunshine.” More likely than not, the locals will join in singing along. Everyone knows the words to a down home tune written by a Louisiana country singer and movie star. And he was sworn in as Louisiana Governor seventy years ago this week.
