Governor's Ball

Honoré Abstains; Vitter, Angelle, Dardenne, Edwards Still In



The national political stage has been lit up by declarations of candidacy. In Louisiana, we do things a bit different. The big news this week is who is not running. Lt. General Russel Honoré (ret.) will not be tossing his hat in the rink. That leaves the heavily favored Senator David Vitter running against LA House Minority Leader John Bel Edwards, Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne, and Scott Angelle.


EWE's 'The Governor's Wife' Premiers Tonight (VIDEO)

The Silver Fox's much ballyhooed reality television show, The Governor's Wife, debuts at 9p.m. tonight on A&E. Edwards' wit and Gonzales charm abound in the opener.
