In a new web advertisement, Hillary Clinton expresses solidarity with victims of sexual assault. She implores those who have been abused not to “let anyone silence your voice. You have a right to be heard. You have a right to be believed. We’re with you.”

Sometimes we can lose sight of the ultimate goal, especially when we are in the thick of the fight. The current political debate in Louisiana on government budgets and economic growth is a good example of this common mistake.

Nine for governor
Nine candidates qualified for the coveted post of governor of Louisiana last week – three Democrats, three Republicans, two No Party, and one Other Party.
But the race remains a four-man battle between Republicans U.S. Sen. David Vitter, Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, and Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne and Democratic state Rep. John Bel Edwards.
The Jay Dardenne for Governor campaign has taken to the TV airwaves as his campaign released today his first television advertising of the campaign. The ad, titled “Something Good”, began running statewide this morning.
Brace yourselves, boys and girls, because Sunday’s 31-19 loss at Arizona just might be a snapshot of what could be a long Saints’ season. You can’t pin this one on one player or unit. It was a true team effort pushed along by mistakes and lack of execution from a combination of veterans, of whom we expect much, and young players who have been pushed out of the foxhole before they have experienced live fire.
The race for Louisiana’s next governor is on. Qualifying for the state’s top job ended Thursday with the four announced major candidates all in and several last minute minor candidates signing up prior to closing. Simply put the primary election on October 24th will boil down to two camps, pro-David Vitter and anyone but David Vitter (R). The battle lines are drawn, and the fight will be ferocious.
In an ongoing political skirmish today between US Senator David Vitter and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the gubernatorial candidate Vitter, returned to the issue of crime and confederate statues.
It was quite a scene at the National Press Club yesterday as Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal joined the other Republican presidential candidates in attacking frontrunner Donald Trump.
The Jay Dardenne For Governor Campaign has taken a creative flare as noted Louisiana musicians, artists, actors, and chefs, including chef Jay Ducote, 2015 Grammy Award winner Jo-el Sonnier, musician Zachary Richard, actors Louis Herthum and Faith Ford, artist Ann Connolly, and others announced their support for Dardenne.
