The 2019 governor’s race took a turn that blindsided many, when US Senator John Kennedy announced he would not challenge Governor Edwards. Political consultant Roy Fletcher says there’s a reason why the GOP doesn't have a Plan B candidate.
"Kennedy sucked the oxygen out of the room and then Elvis left the building," said Fletcher. "The bottom line is that they don't have a candidate yet, but they will."

Governor John Bel Edwards hopes Senator John Kennedy’s decision to stay out of the 2019 governor’s race and remain in D.C. will give the Senator a new-found focus on his federal responsibilities, instead of using his time to verbally spar with state leaders. Edwards responded to the news as a guest on WWL's Newell Normand show.
“I wasn’t surprised, I guess I wouldn’t have been surprised ether way. He has a lot of work to do in the Senate if he would just focus his attention there and get it done.”
