Kathleen Blanco Will Not Run For Reelectionby Kevin Boyd
According to PoliticsLA.com, Louisiana’s so-called governor, Kathleen Blanco, will not seek reelection. Even she saw the handwriting on the wall and saw she had no chance in hell at winning. The people of New Orleans may be stupid enough to reelect Ray Nagin and Bill Jefferson, but the people of Louisiana as a whole are not as stupid as the average New Orleans voter.
The biggest loser, other than Blanco, is of course the leading Republican candidate for governor, Bobby Jindal. He will now actually have to face a competitive campaign, something that he’s not that good at, instead of the cake walk he would have against Blanco.
