We are expecting to see US Sen. John Kennedy (R) announce today his challenge to Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) for next year’s Louisiana gubernatorial election. But, Sen. Kennedy moving into the race may not eliminate all Republican opposition. US Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-Alto/Monroe) is indicating that his decision whether or not to also enter the Governor’s campaign is not predicated by what Sen. Kennedy ultimately decides. Gov. Edwards is expected to soon announce his own re-election effort.
