This is it!
The last U.S. Senate election in the United States takes place Saturday, December 10. The contest is between two old hands in Louisiana politics.
Republican John Kennedy got his start as counsel to Gov. Buddy Roemer in 1988 as a Democrat. In 1991, he ran for state attorney general and lost. In 1996, he was appointed the Secretary of the Department of Revenue by Republican Gov. Mike Foster.
He was elected state treasurer in 1999, a post he holds until this day. He has run for the Senate twice before. In 2004, he ran as a Democrat in the race won by Republican David Vitter, finishing third with 15% of the vote.

It’s Kennedy vs. Campbell
As most polls predicted, it’s Republican John Kennedy against Democrat Foster Campbell in the runoff for the Louisiana U.S. Senate seat.
Campbell edged out Republican Charles Boustany by two percentage points, 17-15%, to make it into the runoff. Kennedy came in first with 25%.
Jim Brown, former Louisiana’s Secretary of State knows something elections. He was a state official for 28 years. He has seen a few presidential elections over his political years spanning roughly 50 years.
On Monday, during a on online video discussion, Brown explained the latest edition of politics USA by calling the upcoming election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as the “craziest presidential election anybody's memory”.
"“It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities,” Trump said.
On Friday in Charlotte, another diverse city, Trump said: “The election is rigged. It’s rigged to like you have never seen before. They’re rigging the system.”
Republican Donald Trump's current slide in the polls nationwide, in battleground states is also evidenced in perhaps the most conservative of all states, Louisiana.
A new U.S. Senate race poll has emerged, paid for by one of the candidates and has already been criticized by at least one of the opponents.
The Louisiana US Senate race is getting a little more contentious between the two top Democrats, Caroline Fayard and Foster Campbell. So contentious that one might wonder if the road to the runoffs might end up in bad blood, so thick, that it ultimately hurts the democrat candidate who ends up with the higher number of votes, November 8.
Th US intelligence community is now on record that Russia is dabbling in American Politics.
Here is a press release:

As everyone knows, there is another presidential debate Sunday night with two liberal moderators and an audience surely stacked with Democrat operatives. Regardless of the actual biased questions, GOP nominee Donald Trump should continually steer the conversation back to the economy, his strongest issue and the most important concern for American voters.
Last week, JMC Pollster, John Couvillon announced his statewide poll that provided some surprising results. Republican John Kennedy had fallen to 11 percent from a definite first place advantage. John Fleming, who paid for the poll was nestled in second place, one point behind the leaders, republican Congressman Charles Boustany and democrat Public Service Commissioner, Foster Campbell.
