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

 

trump disavowMonths ago, I was airing my regular Tuesday morning talk show with Jeff Crouere and I mentioned David Duke’s name.  A response I got was, why mention his name?  Duke is totally irrelevant and nobody listens to him anyway.

One of the individuals who knows David Duke’s political career is Tyler Bridges, now author of two books about two of Duke’s run for office in the 1980’s and 90’s.

This afternoon, Bridges and I discussed Duke’s political past and his current decision to run for office.

Which is what CNN’s Chris Cuomo said to Donald Trump’s campaign manager this morning, the third day of the Republican convention.

Donald Trump campaign is back in its usual “attack mode” or what I am calling “Trump Mode”.

You know Trump and the “Trump Mode”.  He’s the man who is married to the lovely Melania, whose speech is now being accused of plagiarism.

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.
