Republican Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne will report having raised more than $2,200,000 towards the race for Governor when he files his year-end finance report with the Board of Ethics later today.
More good and very bad news for Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal and for the State of Louisiana.
The good news: today, the S&P and Moody's affirmed Louisiana rating in general obligation bonds.
Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy invoking a misbehaving child, figuratively spanked Presidential hopeful, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, for Moody’s credit outlook decline from stable to negative issued today.
Governor Bobby Jindal has been claiming that the massive $1.6B budget debt for 2016 is largely due to the decline in oil prices.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued a statement regarding the good and bad news associated with the anticipated Moody's Investors Services rating and outlook.
Clearly, the hottest Republican in the country today is Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. After a well received speech to Congressman Steve King’s Freedom Summit, Walker has earned media attention and skyrocketed in the polls. Currently, he is in second place in New Hampshire and is leading in Iowa, while he is gaining ground on Florida Governor Jeb Bush nationally.
Is Governor Bobby Jindal wrongfully being blasted for the astounding $1.6 B looming budget deficit Louisiana is facing? Or is he and the State of Louisiana’s unfortunate mere victims to the cascading price of crude oil?
In the five years we have been posting stories about Bobby’s administration, we have, from time to time, had to backtrack and admit we were wrong or were rash in our judgment. This is one of those times.
Louisiana’s Treasurer John Kennedy found a tough decision of his made somewhat harder by impressive fundraising totals by attorney general candidate former Rep. Jeff Landry, while the incumbent Atty. Gen. Buddy Caldwell by his totals shows he faces a tough road to reelection, increasing the odds of just he and Landry facing off.

Can you hear it?
Do you hear that gnashing and grinding noise? You may have to be very quiet and cup your hand around your ear, but if you concentrate for just a moment, I bet you can hear it off in the distance. Take a moment and try it. Quiet your breathing and listen very closely...do you hear it?

One of the all time great coaches in college basketball passed away this week. North Carolina’s Dean Smith had retired with more wins than any coach in history, along with capturing two national championships. But to those who knew him, and I consider myself in that elite number, he was much more than a coach. He was a teacher, an innovator both on and off the court, a role model, and a real humanitarian.
