Louisiana voters on chronic "non calls"

Written by

non call la

New Orleans Saints fans and practically the whole state of Louisiana are up in arms.  And for good reason. It’s become the most talked about call in the history of NFL football.  Simply put-the Saints got robbed.

It is now official; Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is running for re-election. He released a video yesterday confirming the worst kept secret in Louisiana. It has been clear from the beginning of his first term that Edwards was running for re-election.

In his video, Edwards outlined his so-called accomplishments, but neglected to remind voters that he is a Democrat. Ironically, he is trying to have it both ways, pursuing liberal policies while masquerading as a conservative.

It's official.

The Louisiana governor race has begun, kinda.

On one side, we have Republicans Congressman Ralph Abraham and wealthy Baton Rouge Republican businessman Eddie Rispone.

Today, on the other side, enters one Democrat John Bel Edwards, the current occupant of the governor's mansion who first won the seat in 2015.

Here is the campaign information which Bayoubuzz received this morning via email.

Ralph Abraham

Is the Congressman Ralph Abraham-salary attack, a bridge too far?  

How far and how long should a campaign pledge go?

In one respect, that is the issue as the Democratic-based American Bridge once again slammed Republican gubernatorial candidate, Ralph Abraham.

Bayoubuzz's political mailbox is getting cluttered, lately.

Now that the season of eggnog and fireworks have passed, that Election season is almost official begun, that the Democrats control half of the lawmaking up in DC capitol, it seems like everybody wants to get in a word or two, or three.  Email is obviously the still the best way to communicate with the media, hoping the letter sent, gets circulated as expected. Yes, email is, at least for now, the PR megaphone of choice..

The Louisiana Democratic Party, slammed Republican Congressman Ralph Abraham's decision to not vote in favor of the criminal reform bill that was approved this week in Congress and is expected to be signed into law. The Democrats noted that Abraham did not vote for the legislation backed by the president and by members of the Louisiana delegation.  Here is the Democrat's comments and Abraham's Facebook post on the criminal justice reform and below that is the comments made by the Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards::

If Louisiana Republican activists had seen the GOP’s Sen. John Kennedy as the toughest challenger to Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards, GOP Rep. Ralph Abraham shouldn’t disappoint them.

Earlier this week, Kennedy took a pass on running for the state’s top job, disheartening some hoping to dump Edwards. Today, Abraham, after saying for months he gave serious consideration to taking on Edwards, made the plunge.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards: Lucky man he is

Written by

luck bel 5

The good times keep rolling for Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards. Even though he is a Democrat in the red state of Louisiana, he was elected Governor in 2015 due to the personal and political baggage of his run-off opponent, former Republican United States Senator David Vitter. Not only did Vitter have to deal with a prostitution scandal, but he also was so disliked by his fellow Republican gubernatorial candidates that one remained neutral in the run-off and the other one made a very public endorsement of John Bel Edwards.

Eddie is ready.

This version of “Eddie’s Ready”, a slogan used by former New Orleans City Court Judge and Councilman, Eddie Sapir, could apply now to Baton Rouge businessman Eddie Rispone.

Who?

As we enter December 2018, in the land of Louisiana politics, there are two certainties:

No. 1: US Senator John Kennedy is not running for Louisiana governor. 

No. 2: The Democratic Party seems as if they could not be happier, for now.  The GOP bench of gubernatorial hopefuls is woefully thin.
