Maybe Republican Party Chairman, Reince Preibus, the Louisiana Republican Party and Roger Villere should have listened to WGSO radio Wednesday morning. They might have learned something.
This week, a bevy of new polls continue to show Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson at the top of the GOP presidential race.
As one of the front runners, Trump has faced a variety of mean spirited attacks from fellow Republicans, Democrats, media commentators and liberal groups, including Hispanic advocacy organizations.
According to pollster John Couvillon of JMC Analytics, David Vitter’s campaign has some real issues it needs to confront, if the US Senator is to beat democrat Jon Bel Edwards to be the next Louisiana governor. The election is November 21.
Roger Villere, the Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party spoke with WGSO Jeff Crouere, Wednesday morning and discussed various issues relevant to the party.
According to the Chairman of the St. Tammany Republican Parish Executive Committee, Peter Egan, Republican Jay Dardenne's action of publicly supporting Democrat Jon Bel Edwards is a "vehement act of retribution".
Today’s strong-arm tactics by the Republican Party, Reince Priebus, the Louisiana Republican Party, and Roger Villere is simply deplorable. It is embarrassing to Louisiana.
Roger Villere, the Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party is in somewhat of a difficult position. Over the years, he has been one of the most influential forces in taking the Republican Party out of the phone booth and transforming it into the dominant party that it is today. However, as of now, the most important state job is at risk, that is, the Louisiana governor’s spot. Currently, David Vitter, also, one of the prominent influences in bringing the GOP out of the cellar, is trailing his opponent, Jon Bel Edwards, a Democrat.
We have been hearing for years that Louisiana has the world’s highest incarceration rate. There are currently some 40,000 Bayou State residents behind bars, at a cost of $350 million a year. The conventional wisdom from numerous officials in Louisiana is that our prisons are too full, and that so many incarcerations are costing taxpayers too much money. So do we turn ‘em loose?
Based upon three recent polls, Republican US Senator David Vitter trails Democrat Louisiana Rep. Jon Bel Edwards in double digits.
How can this be, since he has been the logical leader ever since he entered the gubernatorial race, given his name recognition, influence, incredible lead over his competitors in contributions (3 to 1 over his combined competitors in the primary race)?
Two polls published this week: One by Verne Kennedy of MRI and the other by John Couvillon of JMC Analytics.
The former placed Democrat Jon Bel Edwards in a lead by 11 to 18% over Republican US Senator David Vitter, the latter, at 20%.
