In our continuing efforts to assist candidates for the 2019 Louisiana Legislative races who are firmly committed to defeating any candidates seeking office who have supported Gov. Edwards’ tax increase measures, Sound Off Louisiana today (Thursday, January 31, 2019) issued its second  official endorsement for the upcoming campaigns:  32-Year Navy Veteran Bob Bell.

NoPennyRenewal website makes first official Louisiana Legislature endorsement: Challenger Keith Baudin for House District 46 over incumbent Mike Huval.

Keith Baudin, R-St. Martinville, who is running for Louisiana State Representative for District 46 against incumbent Mike Huval, R-Breaux Bridge.

Sound Off Louisiana subscribers may recall our feature from last week in which we touted the overhaul of one of our sister websites, No Penny Renewal, to assist challengers in their efforts to defeat incumbent Louisiana Legislators who voted in favor of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ sales tax measures.

Today (Tuesday, January 29, 2019), we commence with making our first official endorsement of one such challenger:  Keith Baudin (R-St. Martinville).

 

Mr. Baudin is challenging incumbent State Representative Mike Huval (R-Breaux Bridge) for Louisiana House District 46.

 

The NoPennyRenewal website featured above now has a formal endorsement page for each individual candidate we endorse which features a brief interview with the challenger of an incumbent who supported Edwards’ tax increase measures.  Additionally, we provide a profile of the incumbent complete with direct links of that incumbent’s votes of “YES” on Gov. Edwards’ tax increase measures in order for viewers to confirm that the incumbent, Mike Huval in this instance, did in fact cast such votes.

We now replicate our first endorsement on the page, Keith Baudin in his efforts to defeat incumbent Mike Huval:


Official Endorsement:

House District # 46:  Keith Baudin

In his efforts to defeat incumbent Mike Huval, who is profiled below together with his votes in favor of Gov. Edwards’ tax hike measures:

HUVAL:  Voted YES on 5/25/18 (1/3 cent sales tax renewal) and YES on 5/28/18.

 

Stay tuned folks, we are expecting to make more endorsements in coming days and weeks to help ensure that Louisiana citizens are NOT subjected to more irresponsible tax increase measures after the conclusion of the 2019 election cycle has been completed!

Rispone: “Gov. Edwards is not a Governor we want to have;” slams him on “not placing children first” on education and ITEP changes.

Baton Rouge Businessman and Republican Candidate for Louisiana Governor, Eddie Rispone.

At the East Baton Rouge Republican Women’s meeting of Thursday, January 24, 2019, candidate for Louisiana Governor, Eddie Rispone, R-Baton Rouge, had some choice words for incumbent Governor John Bel Edwards, D-Amite.  Let’s take a look:


Rispone flatly states Edwards is “not a Governor we want to have,” and slams him on “not placing children first” on education.


Rispone references Together Baton Rouge as a “socialist group” and slams Edwards’ abrupt changes to Louisiana’s ITEP program (EBRP Councilmen Dwight Hudson and Matt Watson pose questions entailing the ITEP program).


Rispone fields a question entailing Medicaid expansion.


Rispone responds to a question regarding his thoughts on a Constitutional Convention.


Rispone fields a question entailing his ability to work with President Trump.


Rispone fields a question from Baton Rouge adoption-law attorney Todd Gaudin regarding why Rispone feels he’s the better Republican choice over challenger U. S. Congressman Ralph Abraham (R-Mangham).

Mr. Gaudin is no fan of Robert Burns or Sound Off Louisiana.  Long-time subscribers may recall an intriguing email exchange between Burns and Gaudin after Burns called Gaudin on the carpet regarding Gaudin’s ill-conceived stand that Burns had no right to videotape proceedings of the Louisiana State Law Institute on which Gaudin volunteers.

In this video, Burns flatly informed Gaudin and the other members of that 18-member panel (some of whom are State District Judges) that he most certainly did have the right to videotape the proceedings and that, if they hindered his efforts to do so, litigation would surely follow.

On the email exchange previously linked, Gaudin emphatically states that Burns has been “deceived” by adoption reform advocate Criag Mills (on whom Sound Off Louisiana has done a five-part feature entailing alleged adoption scams).

Well, if Burns was “deceived” at the time of that email exchange, apparently so too was State Rep. Rick Edmonds (R-Baton Rouge), who touted Mills’ advocacy in this video and sponsored several adoption reform measures in the 2018 Louisiana Legislature which all passed by very wide margins.  Hence, perhaps Gaudin had the ill-conceived notion that essentially the entire Legislature, like Burns, was being “deceived” by Mills since, as depicted on the video just linked, Edmonds readily credits Mills as being the driving force behind his legeslative initiatives!

Stay tuned, folks.  We’ll have more developments on Mills’ civil litigation entailing his alleged adoption scam as his trial date, tentatively scheduled for August of this year, approaches!
