A great deal of action has already occurred in preparation for next year’s Louisiana Governor’s campaign, and yesterday more news was made. State Treasurer John Schroder (R), who confirmed he was considering entering the Governor’s race, announced that he would not challenge Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards.
At this point, understanding that the candidate filing deadline won’t occur until next summer, the main contenders are US Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-Alto/Monroe) and developer Eddie Rispone (R). Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) remains a possible entry now that Sen. John Kennedy (R) is officially out of the Governor’s race.
