So, here is a glance as to the latest developments in the Louisiana US Senate, Lt. Governor and Congressional races along with the latest politicking going on, as usual, outside of our borders by one of our favorite politicians:

US Senate Race:

Congressman Charlie Melancon has just unleashed a new commercial attacking David Vitter for not standing up for state. In the video, he claims that Vitter supported BP and Wall Street over Louisiana.


Senator Vitter took a whack at Melancon, today, reminding voters that a recent poll claims Vitter is sixteen points ahead (Magellan) of the Democrat.

On Twitter, Vitter shared a recent interview with a local television station that covered the lifting of the oil spill moratorium.

Health Care

Mike Stagg has created a online video commercial supporting the controversial health care legislation.

The St. Martin Parish Democratic Executive Committee will run this commercial on Cox's East Acadiana System (St. Martin, Iberia, and part of St. Mary Parish) for most of October.  The Internet video first appeared on the progressive/liberal web site, The Daily Kingfish.

Lt. Governor's Race And Third Congressional District

The Alliance for Good Government showed non-partisanship Tuesday by endorsing Republican Jay Dardenne over Democrat Caroline Fayard for the Lt. Governor’s race and Democrat Ravi Sangisetty over Republican Jeff Landry.  Landry ousted Hunt Downer in the Republican primary earlier this month.  The Alliance covers parishes within the New Orleans regional.

2nd Congressional District

The Democratic Primary challenger Representative Juan LaFonta will announce his endorsement in the Louisiana’s Second Congressional District race, later Wednesday.  Who will it be?  Republican Congressman Joseph Cao.  LaFonta was beaten by fellow state representative and Democrat Cedric Richmond who now faces Cao.
