Louisiana Governor's race
This is from Bob Novak's column yesterday. Sounds pretty good for us!

Louisiana Democratic leaders are putting out word that their state, still running counter to the Republican tide in the Deep South, may send two Democrats into the Nov. 15 runoff of this year's election for governor.

Polls show a comfortable lead for Democratic Lt. Gov. Kathleen Blanco in the non-party primary Oct. 4. Republican Bobby Jindal, a former HHS assistant secretary in the Bush administration, is running second. However, Democratic state Attorney General Richard Ieyoub may soon pass Jindal.

With two Democratic senators, Louisiana lags behind other Deep South states joining the GOP camp. Gov. Mike Foster, who switched from Democrat to Republican just before his first race for governor in 1995, spurned White House pleas to run for the Senate last year.

1. Woohoo Louisiana....
Remember that LA also was the only state to rebuke the Repug election machine in 2002. The state is trending Democratic not Repuke.

Mary Landrieu for V.P.!

3. Clinton got 52% in LA in 1996
It was his best southern state outside of AR. LA stays Democratic because of the strong Catholic presence there.

5. Louisiana is looking very good for two Dems in the runoff. However,
I am afraid of a repub-lite Dem such as former Sen. Randy Ewing getting in the run-off and switching parties.
