What Happened in Louisiana Election?

Were you pleased with results in last week’s Louisiana first primary election? Needless to say, the results showed a number of surprises. Incumbent Gov. John Bell Edwards was forced into a runoff, contrary to what to the polls that were taken in the last few weeks. Now there will be quite a knock down drag out run-off with lots of negatives TV spots that will begin soon. And what happened in the insurance commissioners’ race? I give a full explanation in this week’s column. You can read it now but going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Did you vote in advance i n the first primary election for numerous offices that were on the ballot? About 35% of the registered voters did in Louisiana. There’s been a huge upturn in people voting early since the laws have been changed. In my column this week, I write about some of the stranger things that happened to me when I absently voted. For instance, why no donuts! Take a look and see what you think. You can read my column now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Book Tour to Lafayette!

I have kicked off my new Louisiana book tour,  to promote my book, My Louisiana Odyssey. At a recent stop was in Lafayette, I spoke to the Lafayette Rotary Club.  As a public official in the past, I have spoken to this large civic club on a number of occasions.  It was a treat to renew old friendships and talk about my new memoir. I’m pictured here with Rotary Club President Nanette Heggie and have put to use my new special cup to good use.
