Let’s break down what he had to convey:

 

Couvillon provides his rationale for seeing a “Democratic wave” in the 2018 Congressional midterm elections this fall.

 

Couvillon provides his rationale for seeing a very different result in the 2019 Louisiana Legislative races and cites party registration numbers that are likely troubling to Gov. John Bel Edwards.

 

In response to a question by Sound Off Louisiana’s Robert Burns, Couvillon provides a quick assessment of the top three prospective Republican candidates he sees as potential rivals to Gov. Edwards in 2019.

 

In response to a question by Sound Off Louisiana’s Robert Burns, Couvillon provides his take on how vulnerable Gov. Edwards may be on his emphatic statements that he would not raise taxes during his 2015 campaign for Governor, only to implement massive tax increases since his inauguration in 2016 and also his vulnerability to his having taken his quest for transgendered folk to use the public restroom of their choice all  the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court (where he lost) at significant cost to taxpayers.
