Political Consultant Jason Hebert of The Political Firm joined Scott McKay and Brian Haldane for their election week edition of the Red Bayou Show. The guys start by talking about the Presidential race, and evaluating Donald Trump's chances against Hillary Clinton. They also explore what the "Trump effect" is having on the Republican Party. How is the party evolving? What will the base of the party look like five to ten years from now.
Jason, Scott, and Brian break down the Senate race and who they think will make the run-off. Will Louisiana be looking at a Republican versus Republican in December? And if so, what does that mean for Democrats that are further down the ballot? They look at the Congressional races in both the third and fourth districts, and break down the EBR Mayor's race.
They also talk about how, in Louisiana, we are at the end of what has basically amounted to an election cycle that has been non-stop for the last three years, and what effects that sort of fatigue has on voters.
Before closing up shop for Election Day, they talk a little football as well. More specifically, where does LSU's coaching search stand? Following the loss to Alabama, is the job still Orgeron's for the taking? If not, what does he need to do to make it his?
