This year, it was a perfect opportunity for Louisiana Republicans to defeat a vulnerable Democratic Governor, the only one in the Deep South. Unfortunately, once again, the GOP lost a race it surely should have won.

It must be nice to be John Bel Edwards. On Saturday, he was re-elected to a second term with 51% of the vote even though Louisiana is a conservative “red” state. Other than Edwards, all statewide elected officials in Louisiana are Republicans. In 2016, Louisiana voters supported Donald Trump in the presidential election by a 58-38% margin over the Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.

The Governor's race is on. It's time to party!

Which is what essentially happens every four years and every two to four years encompassing the US Senate race cycles.

The political parties make a presence in one form or another. Actually, daily.

LAGOP MAIL

So, it's Bayoubuzz Louisiana E-Mail bag time.  'Tis the latest electronic missive, this one, received today, sent by the Louisiana Republican Party.

Dear Louisiana voters,

You're not doing so well after all.

Signed,

LAGOP

The Louisiana State Republican Party is doing what all political parties do at this stage of the election campaign.  When more than one candidate runs under the party banner against the incumbent from the other party, the challenging party strikes deep and often.  The usual party mission? Not so impossible--send out daily emails, criticizing the incumbent. In this case, the Republicans are taking on Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, who happens to be defending his seat against two rather unknown political personalities. One is Congressman Dr. Ralph Abraham, a conservative from North Louisiana and the other, Eddie Rispone, a Baton Rouge businessman.

Today's daily missive has takes aim at Edwards by using just-released compative statistics as its weapon of choice. The issue? State unemployment, slow population growth, departure of the best and brightest and weakness in the civilian workforce.

Here is today's e-political scorcher, hot off the press:

trump lagop edwardsHours after the United States President Donald Trump and the Republican Congress celebrated a humongous legislative victory with passing its tax reform package in record time without any Democratic support, back home in Louisiana, there's a different tune being sung.

First, up in DC: The US tax reform plan passed without any hearings and sworn testimony.  Very few, if anyone in Congress read the legislation since none of them even saw it until an hour or so before the vote. That legislation, which passed and signed into law today, put the finishing touches upon the Trump-led US Congressional congressional agenda in which all respect for the ordinary congressional process was ignored. Earlier this year, Republicans unsuccessfully yet similarly attempted to repeal Obamacare without any hearings, or participation by the minority Democrats and yes, without legislation being available for lawmakers to debate.

The Republican Party of Louisiana has rejected a former Democrat who just recently converted to be a Republican to a long-term Republican, who has been vilified in the national media as claiming that global warming is a hoax.  Both candidates have served in the Louisiana House of Representatives.
