It appears first term Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy (R) is serious about running for Governor. He stated yesterday that he will announce his decision about running statewide next year before December 1st. He also said that “it’s hard to stomach what’s happening in Louisiana right now,” which is a pretty good clue that he will enter the race. With a 2019 statewide election schedule, Sen. Kennedy will not have to risk his current position to run for Governor. He next stands for re-election in 2022.
Louisiana features a jungle primary format, meaning all candidates will appear together on the primary ballot. The top two primary finishers advance into the general election.
