Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) is making vague statements about his plans for 2019. After announcing that he would yield to US Sen. John Kennedy (R) in the Governor’s race and seek re-election to his current position, he now has plenty of time to again change course. Sen. Kennedy deciding not to enter the Governor’s race is bringing major change to the gubernatorial campaign. Mr. Landry was quoted as discussing the Governor’s race, and indicated that no matter who runs must address Louisiana as being toward the bottom of the list of states in economic growth.
In other gubernatorial news, two-term Rep. Garret Graves (R-Baton Rouge), who was just re-elected to a third term, said he could best serve the state by remaining in Congress and will not challenge Gov. John Bel Edwards (D).
