We are 15 months away from qualifying for the 2019
Louisiana Governor’s race. Speculation is that Republican U.S. Senator John
Kennedy will challenge Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards. Pollster John
Couvillon says Kennedy was elected as a Senator in 2016 and Edwards re-election
campaign will likely attack the Republican from St. Tammany Parish about running
for another statewide office.

It’s widely expected that Republican Donald Trump will pick up Louisiana’s 8 electoral votes in the presidential race, as it’s rare for The Bayou State to be blue. John Couvillion with JMC Analytics says Trump will likely carry Louisiana by a substantial 10-15% margin. He says the last time the state elected a Democrat for president was in 1996.

A pollster believes the win of Democrat John Bel Edwards over Republican David Vitter in a predominately conservative state is an anomaly. John Couvillion of JMC Analytics says Edwards got votes from Dardenne supporters and from rural areas that haven’t voted democrat since the early 90s.
