Trump Talk:LIVE WITH JEFF CROUERE

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

kennedy appropriations2In its final Southern Media Opinion and Research poll of 2016, Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy holds a significant 14-point lead over his Democratic Party opponent Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell,  Kennedy leads Campbell 52% to 38%.
