Who will be our next Governor?
Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal is term-limited and cannot seek a third term, and the next governor’s election is not until 2015, but that hasn’t stopped visions of being the state’s chief executive from dancing in many wannabe heads.
The list of candidates will, obviously, be a long one since it is an open seat. Republicans are hoping to hold on to the most powerful governor’s office in the country, while Democrats are hoping to take back the office it has dominated for past decades.
So, who wants to be governor of Louisiana? At the top of the list of potential candidates, it appears, is Democrat John Georges, a wealthy New Orleans businessman. He asked renowned pollster Dr. Verne Kennedy of Market Research Insight (MRI) to do a poll to test the political waters in the state.
