DCCC Targets Louisiana Races

Posted By on Mon, Aug 11, 2008 at 1:46 PM

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has taken a special interest in south Louisiana. 

Baton Rouge incumbent Congressman Don Cazayoux remains one of the group’s “Frontline” candidates, meaning he’ll get all the resources he needs — from money to strategy — to maintain his seat this fall. Dr. Bill Cassidy, a Republican state senator, and state Rep. Michael Jackson, both of Baton Rouge, are opposing him in November. Two years ago, no one in the “Frontline” program lost. Elsewhere in Louisiana, the DCCC has again upgraded its assessment of state Sen. Don Cravins Jr. of Opelousas, who is running for Acadiana’s congressional seat. Cravins is now in the “Red to Blue” program for his bid to unseat incumbent Congressman Charles Boustany, a Lafayette Republican. — Jeremy Alford
