JBE is still a Louisiana politician. Let's not praise him just yet.

Agreed.... and we still have a Republican Congress in the State. I don't think things will be easy.

Too bad that people haven't learned lessons from national (and some states') events of the last seven years. A Democrat elected in any state would be trouble for the economy and people's well-beings, and Louisiana is no exception. Never mind that the last name of the governor-elect has a history in the state; that's not even important at this juncture. Louisianans will regret the way they voted in this election and I predict that it won't take long to see that.

One of the things this state and many others do not need is a Republican which has proven to be bad for the State, Republican Governors like Jinda, Scott Walker, Swartznegger and a list of others, who have been nothing but havoc for education and employment. They have no regard nor respect for Environmental concerns and want to give away tax breaks to any company that will give a campaign contribution. They fovor only cities where they get donations and the rest of the state is nothing to them, We saw that with Christie and his "bridge gate fiasco". But as normal Republican don't recogonize any of these things. Scott Walker simply flat out attacked the workers and made certain that companies can treat them any kind of way and they have no voice, he knew that when he pushed to fight against Unions, which is the only form of collective voice that employees could possibly have.
The history of Republicans is documented, during EVERY republican Administration for the past 40 or so years has left nothing but a damaged economy, engaged in conflict and on the Presidential Level embroiled us in wars on foreign soil.
It was Republican who pushed to ship jobs 8000 miles away, when Mexico is right next door with a vast labor pool, which could have diminished the illegals crossing over into the US and still we would have had better trade arrangements and not have given up the Industrial Power of the US.

Republican are certainly good as creating and promoting havoc and trying to keep women down, and in doing so they have not much concern for uplifting any minority group in any location across this nation.

Yes, the people can and do see it. We can look at the Fire brand mentality of Trump, then you get the crazies like Huckabee and the unaware like Carson, then there's the Bush trying to turn America into a 3 member Bush Dynasty. It's purely insane, Cruz is not only on the extremist tea party, he is a Canidian, trying to wreak havoc in America's landscepe, then there is Rubio, who is unaware and not of the stature that it takes to be presidential, followed by Christie who'd try to bully and play bridge gate games across the nation.
I think we are well aware that a Republican is not what is needed. We remember Cotton won by saying nothing but" I'll attack and oppose Obama", not message simply playing to the hate mentality of the Right Winger who fell for it hook, line and sinker.

If Louisiana wants to grow and get rid of the Confederate tonality, and dispense with the Antebellum Ideology and image, then the first step is get rid of Republicans dominating the congress and thank goodness the people made the first step to get a Democratic Governor.
