A Red Wave Through the Bayou

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Republican legislative supermajorities-to-be mean that conservatives will determine Louisiana’s future. It’s a rolling disaster for the party that formerly governed Louisiana as a political fiefdom from Reconstruction until the late 1990s, and it could be the end of the Democrat Party as a major force in state politics. Few will miss them in a state left thoroughly broken by Edwards’ misrule and a tradition, built by his Democrat predecessors, of waste, corruption, overtaxation, and incompetence at the Capitol. If Rispone can finish the job the voters began on Saturday, the Bayou State might join the rest of America in the Trump revival.
