In part three of the interview with Trey Ourso, the Director of Gumbo PAC, we touched upon the Super PAC rules regarding prohibited coordination and communications. While a SuperPAC can be a very powerful weapon in elections campaigns, such as the one against David Vitter, it can have risky consequences.
The Louisiana Governor's race could be considered a text-book case study to how a candidate could come out of nowhere and beat the most powerful politician in the state. That is exactly what occurred when Jon Bel Edwards bested the rest of the pack and then defeated David Vitter to replace Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.
It is correct that Jon Bel Edwards campaign beat the David Vitter campaign last month. However, for one of the first times in Louisiana political history, secondary campaigns competed with other similar campaigns to get out the message, either for or against the party they opposed.
