Yesterday, the United States Sen. David Vitter, had a bad poll day.
The timing could not have been better—or worse, depending upon your perspective.
But all things considered, Wednesday was a bad day for a certain Louisiana governor flailing away in a doomed quest for the Republican presidential nomination.
We're in the explosive Google Hangouts, Blab, Periscope, Meerkat revolution and very few are noticing.
Actually, many in the political communities, appear to be unaware of the new, explosive and inexpensive technologies available to them. Why is that?
Ever since it was launched in 1996, Fox News has enjoyed an ever growing television audience. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh often promoted Fox News in the early years of the network, helping to establish the connection with conservatives across the country. In fact, thanks to Rush and others on talk radio, Fox News enjoyed tremendous ratings growth over the last 19 years.
Are the recent attacks by the Vitter PAC (officially known as the “Funds for Louisiana’s Future”) and by his gubernatorial campaign against Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle regarding his role, in the Bayou Corne sinkhole tragedy, accurate? Are they truthful?
So, is the moon orange?
A liberal-oriented polling organization has rendered a new survey in the Louisiana governor's race, on behalf of Gumbo PAC, an organization dedicated to ensure that David Vitter is not elected governor of the state.
The Pope is taking the country by storm having made visits to three American cities in the past week. His schedulers made one oversight in planning Pope Francis’ first trip to the U.S. He should have come to Louisiana. More than half the population in South Louisiana is Catholic. There are over 500,000 Catholics in the New Orleans area alone. If the pope wanted to visit a state with a Catholic pulse, the Bayou State should have been a “must stop” for the pontiff.
On Monday, the Baton Rouge Press Club hosted a forum for the gubernatorial candidates. Of the major candidates, US Senator David Vitter, was the only person not in attendance, apparently due to pressing obligations at Washington DC., although he has made over thirty forums since declaring to be a candidate for Louisiana governor.
No doubt, US Senator David Vitter is winning the money war and the endorsement war. His own campaign and that of his Super PAC, Fund for Louisiana's Future have substantial funds as they have taken to the airwaves in the gubernatorial election.
Today, his press office released the following statement concerning even more support--endorsements:
David Vitter announced a number of key endorsements for his gubernatorial campaign from multiple Republican Parish Executive Committees from across the state.
US Senator David Vitter continues to try to sink the Scott Angelle campaign by claiming that the former Secretary of Natural Resources under Governor Bobby Jindal is running away from the controversail Bayou Corne Sinkhole.
From the very beginning of the race for Governor of Louisiana, the leader has been U.S. Senator David Vitter. The conservative Republican has a massive fund raising advantage over his opponents. Also, as a member of Congress since 1999, Vitter enjoys a name recognition advantage as well.

What happened during the debate in front of the Baton Rouge press club Monday?
That is what I asked Gannett reporter, Greg Hilburn, as he drove from the state's capitol back home to Monroe Louisiana.
As this goes to press, the Baton Rouge Press Club is hosting the gubernatorial candidates today for its forum. Present, are Democrat Jon Bel Edwards and Republicans Jay Dardenne and Scott Angelle. Not present is US Senator David Vitter.
