Louisiana Elected a Democrat as their governor [https://en.wikipedia.org...]. So, 2015 has produced no net change in the number of governors the GOP and the Democrats hold.

The guy is very very conservative. It means nothing in the way of "shift".

Sure, but that doesn't mean that the labels are irrelevant. In Louisiana, when faced with two conservative options, the one under the Red flag is still the favorite.

I can't disagree with that, but its a stretch to say Louisiana is becoming more liberal. I sure don't expect it in the general presidential cycle.

When did I say that Louisiana was becoming more liberal? I don't remember saying that.

You did not. I am point out that the Democrat is very conservative, and the people of Louisiana are not shifting in any real way.

The guy only won because David Vitter was caught hiring the...ahem, services, of prostitutes. Who the *expletive* would, especially in the Bible Belt, vote for a guy like that?

It also isn't as though Louisiana hasn't had a democratic governor in forever. Bobby Jindal's predecessor was Kathleen Blanco, a democrat. I'm pretty sure her poor handling of Katrina is what allowed the following period of GOP dominance over the governorship.

Vitter was reelected to the Senate even after that scandal emerged. Just sayin'...
