    Not much coverage in the liberal media. Republican Jindal won every Parish in Louisiana to take a ten way primary for governor by 66%. The nearest democrat had 18%. Shades of 2012?

    Louisiana is a Republican State now? At best it's a Purple state.

    He was on TV last night and his list of accomplishments was very impressive despite the condition of our economy. New blood is what our party needs!

    In 2005 LA was a DEM state.

    Senate election completes Republican takeover of Louisiana government | NOLA.com

    Cute chart on this link.

    It also further states:

    State Sen. Mike Michot, R-Lafayette, who heads the powerful Finance Committee, said many conservative Democrats are flocking to the GOP because they fear being linked with President Barack Obama and a national Democratic Party that are deeply unpopular in the state.

    The political toxicity of the national Democrats was on display in Saturday's special election in a last-minute GOP attack that Granger's campaign staff included a former Obama organizer.

    Still, the Democrats' political downfall happened with stunning quickness. Just six years ago, Democrats held six of the seven statewide constitutional offices and broad majorities in the House and Senate.

    Keep hoping for no change. It might be therapeutic for lefties after an incoherent four years.
