Democrat Louisiana Governor Wins Re-Election, Defeats Republican Challenger Eddie Rispone

How did this happen?

It was a nail-biter, just as it was in Kentucky last week. But the result was the same. A Democrat defeated a Republican for the governorship. First, Matt Bevin lost his race. On Saturday, Eddie Rispone lost his in Louisiana.

Rispone sought to become the Pelican State’s governor, having never before run for public office. He had tremendous support from President Trump. Naturally, the left will declare this a hit on 45’s record. Here’s the break down, via The Hill:

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) won a second term on Saturday, overcoming a wealthy Republican challenger in a state that has increasingly leaned to the right in recent years.

With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Edwards led businessman Eddie Rispone (R) by 50.7 percent to 49.3 percent margin. The Associated Press projected Edwards would hold on.

Reactions:

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, upon winning reelection: “As for the president, God bless his heart.”

The final margin is likely to be very close. A Dem strategist I just spoke with credits LSU’s win vs. Alabama for voters’ satisfaction w/ direction of state & Edwards’s razor-thin victory. #LAGOV

We all know major cities are trending blue, but Edwards (D) breaking 90% in Orleans Parish is still pretty breathtaking. #LAGOV

A key to tonight’s #LAGOV outcome: the small but critical bloc of Ralph Abraham (R) primary voters who either stayed home or voted for Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) in the runoff.

It sure was evident in the parish-level results tonight.

Much like the #KYGov race, the #LAGov runoff was decided by a few thousand votes.

Folks, anyone who tells you that your vote does not count is lying to you.

Donald Trump’s night so far:

– Mysteriously taken to Walter Reed hospital
– Democrat John Bel Edwards defeats Trump’s guy Ripsone in #lagov election
– Mike Pence aide gives impeachment testimony that totally screws Trump
– Trump is going to prison
– It’s still only 11pm

Democrat Senators Refuse To Comment On Removal Of George Washington Statues

Published

on

The Daily Caller recently reached out to the offices of every single Democratic senator to find out what they thought of the notion of tearing down George Washington statues, a move that would be consistent with their support of the removal of other works of art and monuments that Black Lives Matter and other radical leftists claim offend someone. Every single one of them refused to comment. That’s telling, isn’t it? Check out more of the details from The Washington Examiner: One senator, Tammy Duckworth from Illinois, recently said she supports a conversation on removing such statues. “He should be talking about what we’re going to do to overcome this pandemic,” Duckworth said of President Trump during a CNN interview earlier in July. “What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead, he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors.” She added during the interview, “I think we should listen to the argument there. But remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty.” What this really comes down to is the fact the left wants to sanitize the history of the United States and supplant the truth with their own revisionist version of events in order to help support their own progressive principles to further brainwash future generations of young people into being loyal to the state and the values it espouses. The reality is, we need to leave these monuments alone, even if they are offensive. Why? Because, for starters, people are more complex than all evil and all good. At least most people. These monuments are a testament to the history of our nation. They remind us of who we…

Failed Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Says ‘We Must Be Ready’ For Possibility Trump Will Refuse To Leave Office

Published

on

Twice failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate that she’s sour over the major defeat she suffered at the hands of Donald Trump by spouting off all sorts of nonsense conspiracy theories about the president not leaving office if he loses the election this year. Obviously, this is nothing more than an attempt to fear monger and try making liberals shake in their boots and show up en masse to defeat the president in November. The more scared the left keeps people, the more they will refuse to see the truth behind what is happening in our country, believing that the only way to stay safe from the big, bad president is through liberal policies. Clinton conducted an interview with Trevor Noah from The Daily Show where she discussed mail-in ballots and potential voter suppression. Here’s more detail from The Washington Examiner: Noah asked Clinton if there was a scenario she could envision in which the president loses the election but argues that a couple instances of voter fraud are enough to invalidate of the election results. “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that. But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim,” she said in reference to Republican claims about the potential for widespread voter fraud via mail-in ballots. Voting by mail, a longstanding practice, has been fiercely debated as more election officials have expanded access to absentee voting during the coronavirus pandemic. https://youtu.be/jwhCtkssg00 “Look, I want a fair election. If people get to vote and they, for whatever reason, vote for Donald Trump,…
