While it's not ideal that Edwards signed that bill at least he is pro-Medicaid in a state that greatly needs it.

Every Blue Dog throws a bone to the Left Once in a while. Its not enough for me to look over their flaws

A bone from a Blue Dog is better than nothing from a candidate who can’t hit 1% in the election or a Republican.

It’s Louisiana. You have to apply a sliding scale to some political label depending on where you are.

Sergeant Hooker: Why is Jindal mentioned as a candidate ?

Was once mentioned in a “credible” source as a potential candidate. Usually we provide the link.

This article came up when I googled Bobby Jindal 2019 [Link]

He is delusional if he thinks Louisianans will want him back considering he left with a dismal 30% approval rating.

So far, mail ballots don't look too good for the Dems but this may be republicans voting for John Bel Edwards. Also according to Couvillon, the African American turnout in mail ballots is down 4% from 29% in 2015 to 25% this year.

What are the rules for mail-in? Can they be cast up to election day or is there a cut-off before election day?

Was hoping JBE could avoid a runoff, but that was always a pipe dream. I wouldn't say his vote share was *too* disappointing, as he did about as well as the polls said he would, but I was hoping for at least 48%. He still has a chance, but I'm bracing myself for a Rispone win here. I don't agree with Edwards on abortion, but I still like seeing a Democratic statewide official elected in the South.

this result was probably in the middle between the best results where Edwards doesn't win a majority and the results where Edwards is DOA in a runoff.

Rispone is a tougher runoff opponent than Abraham too
