Lights.  Cameras. Let's start the campaign show action!

On Tuesday, the Louisiana Governor’s race has officially started with a snap.  The top issue is whether any candidate can beat US Senator David Vitter who is the prohibitive front-runner.

bel-edwardsLouisiana’s 2015 governor’s race may tell us whether the standard playbook of southern Democrats needs permanent revision.
The party’s endorsed candidate for that office, state Rep. John Bel Edwards, finally joined his major Republican opponents in running a television ad – perhaps so late because he trails them on in fundraising. In it, we discover, as testament to being a “born leader,” that he was the all-American boy in high school, a West Point graduate who served his country in elite capacity in the Army, and is “pro-life” and “pro-Second Amendment.” Also, he’s a “fighter for education, health care, and working families.”

Louisiana capitolAdvocates of tax-and-spend government ought to be increasingly happy at the turn of fiscal events in Louisiana. Not only did they get several hundred million dollars in tax increases for this current budget, they might be in line to do it again with next year’s – if the public buys their specious argument that this represents the only alternative.

There is a new poll on the Louisiana governor’s race, but there is not much new in it. Triumph Campaigns, which conducted the poll, admits, “...overall, the ballot for governor has not changed much.”
The survey was conducted with 1,019 respondents on Sept. 1-2. The margin of error is +/-2.9%. Here are the results:
State Rep. John Bel Edwards (D) – 31.4%.

Tempest in a teapotAfter weeks of pressuring from the Republican National Committee (RNC) to sign a “loyalty pledge,” GOP frontrunner Donald Trump finally acquiesced and signed the document on Thursday. Trump announced the decision at a press conference at Trump Tower in New York City after meeting with RNC Chairman Reince Preibus.
