The cajun collapse continues for dems& other tidbits
We have had three more senators in Lousianna in recent weeks switch to the GOP. That now gives the GOP a 23 to 16 majority in the Louisianna state senate. Next door in Mississippi its looking more and more likely that the courts will end up drawing the districts for the state legislature this year. House Speaker Billy McCoy(D) is refusing to send conferees to a meeting with the state senate to work out their differences over redistricting. By the way word has it that Speaker McCoy will retire from the legislature once the legislative session is over and the same goes for longtime democrat state senator Jack Gordon(D) as well.
