LIGHTNINGApparently, political lightning has struck a Louisiana gubernatorial election poll, once again.

Pollster Verne Kennedy of the Alabama-based Market Research Insights (MRI) wants to correct poll results tracking the Louisiana gubernatorial election.  He feels the information that has been reported in the media does not reflect the poll results.  He says that TheInd.com (and later,  other media), citing a June poll he conducted, has reported Democrat John Bel Edwards, is leading Republican US Senator David Vitter by a margin of six points 30 to 24.   Instead, as of the time of the relevant June poll, Kennedy says Vitter was in front of Edwards by two percentage points.

angelleIf Scott Angelle ere elected governor this fall, how would he distinguish himself from the current  governor, Bobby Jindal?  What would be the one thing he would focus upon to make a difference to Louisiana?  Does he support the the controversial SAFE Act, passed by the Louisiana legislature that enabled the state to budget the budget that starts July 1 2015?

Current Public Service Commissioner and Louisiana Gubernatorial candidate  Angelle has a long history serving his community and Louisiana.  He was Secretary of Natural Resources under democratic governor Kathleen Blanco and under current Governor  Jindal.   Jindal appointed him to be interim  Lt. Governor to fill the seat vacated by Mitch Landrieu, who had become New Orleans Mayor.   The governor then appointed Angelle to the LSU Board of Supervisors.  He then won the seat for Public Service Commissioner.

Fifty years ago this month, rock band The Who released their megahit rock opera called “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”  The song ended with the lyrics: “Meet the new boss, Same as the old boss.”  From the early debates in the approaching Louisiana governor’s race, voters are hearing few fresh ideas as how to get the Bayou State out of its fiscal and quality of life disarray that has continued for years.

This fall’s Louisiana governor’s race has settled down into a four-man contest.  U.S. Senator David Vitter is far out front, and conventional wisdom points to a republican-democratic runoff between Vitter and Rep. John Bell Edwards from Amite.  But is the current field of candidates set in stone?  Is there still room for another major candidate-an Independent?

Louisiana’s next governor will take office in less than eight months, and will jump into the abyss of a state with massive fiscal problems, an educational system that is dysfunctional, a healthcare system that needs a major overhauling, a highway system that has been neglected for years…get the picture?
