The Louisiana Republican party has released a statement concerning Jon Bel Edwards’s Syrian refugee issue.
While David Vitter has received big endorsements from his Congressional delegation and from some statewide officials, back home, in David Vitter's home turf, Jefferson Parish, a group of government officials are coming out to support Jon Bel Edwards.
According to the most recent tracking poll from Verne Kennedy, Jon Bel Edwards leads David Vitter by ten points when accounting for only 20% of African American vote and by fifteen when accounting for 26% of the vote.
The poll indicates a overall gain by Vitter of 1% from the report released Saturday.
Bobby Jindal, Louisiana Governor has suspended his campaign for President (quit the race).
The Syrian Refuge
David Vitter is taking on Jon Bel Edwards and President Obama on the Syrian Refugee issue and the Paris terror attacks.
Last night, Vitter and Edwards discussed the issue in the debate:

Edwards has double-digit lead
Democrat John Bel Edwards holds a double-digit lead over Republican David Vitter in the race for Louisiana governor, according to two new polls.
A poll release Monday by JMC Analytics showed:
*Edwards leads Vitter 51-35%. Undecided 13%.
On Saturday night, 8.5 million Americans had the misfortune to watch three dangerously out of touch liberals debate the major issues of the day during the Democratic Party’s presidential debate. It was another example of how Democrats prefer the fantasy of their liberal beliefs to the true reality we are facing as a nation.
Despite attempts to play down the David Vitter prostitution issue in the Louisiana gubernatorial election, it, unlike the US Senate race, might be a major contributor in causing Vitter to lose against a Democrat, Jon Bel Edwards, who only four months ago, had virtually no name recognition in the state.
Louisiana State Representative Jon Bel Edwards has issued a statement regarding the growing Syrian refugee matter that has disrupted since the Paris ISIS terror attacks. Also, his opponent for Louisiana Governor, David Vitter, has continued to lash at Edwards for working with the Whte House on trying to prevent safety for refugees inflicted by religious persecution, while, trying to provide security for Louisiana citizens.

It was halftime of the Saints game yesterday when I checked my Twitter account for any wisdom on why the hometown heroes were getting pistol-whipped by a very average Redskins team. Fletcher Mackel, sports director of WDSU-TV in New Orleans, remarked that on its current pace of 394 total yards in the first half alone, Washington’s offense could gain 800 yards on the very offensive Saints defense. I hit “reply” and suggested to Mackel that the Saints adopt the city’s pothole policy when it comes to filling holes. Put an orange cone in front of the hole and maybe the Redskins running backs would drive around them just as thousands of New Orleans drivers do every day.
Today, a new poll has been released for the Louisiana governor race and other statewide races, this one by JMC Analytics. The poll shows a four point drop from prior poll by JMC, 20 to 16 point advantage over the past couple of weeks.
The poll also shows Jeff Landry and Billy Nungesser successful in their races.
Louisiana gubernatorial candidate, David Vitter, behind in the polls, is making the tragedy in Paris a last-minute political push. In a letter he promoted on his campaign email yesterday and by another campaign email today ( urging individuals to sign via Facebook pledge against Syrians entering the United States), the governor hopeful is clearly trying to maximize the terrorist attack in Paris and Syrian immigrants, to his political advantage.

You may not have heard, but there is apparently a strict code of loyalty among Republican candidates in Louisiana. They follow the rule of never speaking ill about a fellow republican, and they always rally behind the parties’ choice against any democratic challenger.
We are now entering the last week of Louisiana’s race for governor. After seven and one half years of Bobby Jindal, voters are ready to make a change. Louisiana has been neglected by its current republican governor. So the question is which candidate will be that change. Voters are struggling with conflicts of democrat vs. republican and a “serious sin” republican vs. a West Point graduate, former Army Ranger, and pro-life, pro-gun democrat. The choice would not be so difficult if the pro-life, pro-gun West Point graduate and former Army Ranger were a republican. But in this race that ideal candidate with the credentials, background, and family values is not a republican. He is a democrat. For all voters, democrat, republican, and independent, the obvious choice is a democrat, John Bel Edwards, if the man and his substance mean more than simply voting political party.
