The office of the current Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwaards has announced the arrangements for remembrance of former Governor Louisiana Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco who died on Sunday.
Here are the arragements which includes Governor Blanco's body lie in state at the Louisiana capitol rotunda:
Is Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, taking on Trump like he did Governors Blanco, Jindal?
It appears that Louisiana Senator John Kennedy is beginning to show the type of independence that made him popular when he was State Treasurer. Despite substantial bombarding of ads over the airwaves urging voters to support President Donald Trump’s judicial nominee, Kyle Duncan, he opted not to do so. But, it might be some of the questions he asked that gives rise to his current departure of voting along party lines, particularly, supporting President Trump.
While Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal no longer has the self-imposed obligation to run a state while also running for U.S. President, the apparently unemployed former-top state official has another responsibility, perhaps of greater importance.
He must rebuild his own reputation.
You just have to love Louisiana politics.
It’s kind of like having someone pee down your back while telling you it’s raining.
Or maybe trying to run a marathon with a rock in your shoe.
Inaguration day for any elected official is always an exciting event.
For those beig sworn into office in 2016 for the State of Louisiana, it was a day not just full of political suspense but some of the finest Louisiana music, food and politics money could buy.
