washington-guilliotineSince the catastrophic launch of Obamacare and the slamming TV spots sponsored by the Koch brothers, Mary Landrieu’s popularity has plummeted. Her favorables are now, according to the Grigsby poll, 41%. On the other hand, 38% of the people in the poll did not know who her main opponent, Bill Cassidy, is. Landrieu’s Senator race, corporate funding of political campaigns, and the recent Supreme Court’s rejection of campaign funding limits were the discussion topics of this hangout with Stephen Sabludowsky and Jim Brown.

Landrieu in trouble but who's Cassidy?

The Grigsby poll assessed the opinions on a sample of Louisianians on politicians, elections, and current political issues in the state.

jindal-speechGovernor Jindal keeps attracting buzz. Yesterday, he announced a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, a move many see as a sign that he’s moving further away from Louisiana towards Washington, D.C.

Jindal’s future, both nationally and locally, was the discussion topic of the last segment.

landrieu-tea-partyThis fall, Mary Landrieu, who has served three terms as a US Senator, is up for election again. Recently, another experienced Democrat, four-term ex-Governor Edwin Edwards, announced that he’s running for Congress. Landrieu has faced a storm of criticism, particularly from Republicans, for her endorsement of Obamacare. Also, Landrieu has just assumed the powerful position of Chairperson of the Senate Energy and Natural Resource Committee, an important assignment for an energy-producing state such as Louisiana. This new assignment and the importance of seniority in office were the discussion topics in this section.
