Never let a good tragedy go to waste when vying for the governor's office. And, guess who Bobby Jindal endorsed for governor?

Vitter and Edwards: Stop Syrian Refugees

Ok, so John Bel Edwards says pause, David Vitter says stop when it comes to Syrian refugees entering Louisiana in the wake of the Paris terror attack. Vitter even asked New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu (not exactly his pod'nuh) to join him in asking President Obama to stop allowing Syrians into the U.S. You may say they have a point, you may say they are using a tragedy to grab votes in the days leading up to the election, but officials say meh - there's only 13 or 14 refugees in the New Orleans area so far. BTW, that herd of 10,000 refugees you keep hearing about coming to Louisiana is the number that our entire nation is set to take.

Full Blown Heat

The Advocate goes across the state to catch up with all the glad-handing David Vitter and John Bel Edwards and their camps are doing. It's nothing earth shattering but provides a nice cross section of what voters are thinking.There's also an odd mention of how Cleo Fields is NOT a part of Edwards' campaign.

Jindal: I don't Love them Foes

This just in: Bobby Jindal won't endorse either candidate for governor. Well, that certainly just killed this whole thing. How will vitter and Edwards ever finish this thing off without a Jindal endorsement? I guess we should just close the polls and go home now. In other related news, Edwards and Vitter congratulate each other on Jindal's announcement. Not really. But, seriously.

I don't know what is a bigger crime: the theft of $10,000 worth of meat from the Abbeville Winn Dixie or not inviting me to the ensuing cook-out.
