This week, Louisiana and the nation were treated with some big political news, not that it was unexpected.
U.S. Senator David Vitter decided to enter the Louisiana Governor’s Race although he apparently will keep his US Senate position.

"D." As in "dull." "Dull" and "Don’t have the gravitas" and...gasp (!) "Danish."

Who’s winning? Who is supporting whom? Here is a summary of news, endorsements and an opinion from one of the region’s best-known PR and political experts, Cheron Brylski:
Roseanne Roseannadanna summed it up pretty well in trying to make sense to make sense out of the trials and tribulations of Louisiana. “Well, it just goes to show you, it’s always something,” she said. We are hearing cries that Louisiana is unable to take care of its problems, and should be treated differently than other states. Some even say, OK, then — make it a protectorate of the federal government. And you know what? Maybe that ain’t too bad of an idea.
The days when people had to cram together in crowded rooms to attend public meetings, make long-distance phone calls, or travel far to try to influence or pose questions to politicians are long past. Now, you can sit in Alaska (or anywhere) and upload your questions or concerns to the Internet. You might then get your answers directly from your politician through private or public Google Hangouts that you can watch and listen to on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

For months, Louisiana political observers have been waiting for David Vitter to make it official. Today, he confirmed the worst kept political secret in state history. In 2015, Vitter will run for Governor of Louisiana. The advantage for Vitter is that he does not have to relinquish his U.S. Senate seat to run for Governor. He also has universal statewide name recognition and is leading in pre-election polls.
