Governor John Bel Edwards has announced today that he has challenged his two current Republican opponents to three statewide televised debates this fall, but one of the two say that’s not enough.
In a press statement sent via electronic mail, Edwards stated that he wants the debates to take place from September 2nd up until October 12.

I have read the Meuller Report. I wanted to refrain from opining until I read it for myself. I deliberately turned away from all media coverage because I didn't want my.views contaminated by the pinditocracy. Here are my takes:
It has been quite a while since Americans have witnessed an honorable and effective Attorney General serving in that important position. The two Attorneys General during the Obama administration were hopelessly partisan and extremely protective of the President.
Eric Holder famously claimed that he was “the President’s wing-man” who was “there with my boy.” Obviously, he worked non-stop to protect the President from any legal trouble and congressional investigations. Whether it was Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS Tea Party abuse scandal or the Benghazi terrorist attack, Attorney General Holder was insistent on shielding Barack Obama from any trouble. He was so committed to that goal that Holder became the first U.S. Attorney General to be held in Contempt of Congress for refusing to release documents related to the Fast and Furious investigation.
by Jim Miller The Pelicans' hiring of David Griffin as GM and head of basketball operations has a chance to be the best hire for a New Orleans sports team since Jim Finks in 1986. The reason? Because Griffin is the first GM since Finks to come to New Orleans with a proven record at assembling championship teams.
Folks, is it over, yet?
I mean, is it safe to come out and opine without being slammed as a hater or a Trump lover?
Has the Mueller report settled anything? Is President Donald Trump truly exoneraed as he claims or will Robert Mueller's future testimony along with Attorney General Bill Barr's congressional hearing shed more darkness than light?
I don't know.
What I do know however is this-- the world will go on, Americans will continue to hate one another over Trump. Names will continued to be called and probably nobody's mind will have changed, regardless of facts presented.
Democrats will insist upon getting to the truth. Republicans will claim the Dems are only in it to get at Trump as they promote hearings on the investigators.
