HOW CAN  STATES LIKE LOUISIANA

BECOME PLAYERS IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION?

Last week, this column analyzed how only a handful of states will be both relevant and make any substantive difference in next year’s presidential election.  Under the present system, it’s a “winner take all” contest, where the state’s electoral votes go to the top vote getter.  In a red state, like Louisiana, a Republican voting majority is a dead cinch.  So why should the candidate for president pay any attention to die hard red or blue states where campaigning is of little value?  I have  an idea that may have some merit…at least for the Bayou State.  Take a look at my new column now up  you can read it  by Clicking Here, or by going to the RED FLASHING BOX above.  Take a look.
