Get ready to Ralph...Abraham
Congressman Abraham makes it official. Start the "assuring JBE of a second term" talk...in 3...2...1...

BR Advocate story

He's got my vote.

Much better conservative credentials than Kennedy, buy less electable. I'll vote for him if Graves and Hewitt stay out.

He is a good man but will not get the south la votes or enough to win.

I'll vote for him, for no other reason than "anyone but JBE" but he has a long road ahead of him. Best of luck.

re: Get ready to Ralph...Abraham
He's a great guy who unfortunately has no shot because no one down south has ever heard of him. Granted, he has almost a year to change that, but it's not going to come cheap.

As of right now, my guy is Rispone, but if Abraham makes the runoff, I would have zero qualms supporting him.

re: Get ready to Ralph...Abraham

I don't think anyone outside of Tangipahoa Parish had ever heard of JBE before he ran for governor. I certainly think he is better known than Rispone. Abraham does a weekly segment on the 107.3 morning talk radio here in BR and his district extends to St. Francisville, but yeah he's got a lot of work to do below I-10 and SW Louisiana. He's got a lot of contacts in the medical profession as well as military though his National Guard work, but he's got to get out in the public more, for sure.

Yeah, but he's a democrat who's last name is Edwards. As long as he made the runoff, 36% of the state was going to show up and vote for him just because he had a D next to his name, and another 10% was going to vote for him because they thought it was Edwin, not John-Bel.

GOP voters are far more fickle when it comes to someone they're not familiar with.

I think the key is going to be getting the GOP united and backing whoever comes out of the primary. JBE won because of people like Dardenne and others from the GOP who didn't like losing. It looks like Abraham is choice of the party higher-ups and I am sure they will have Cassidy, Kennedy, Graves and others promoting him big time.

If someone is throwing bombs and mud raking from the GOP side, it sure as heck won't be Abraham slinging the stink. He's a standup dude. I could see Rispone going negative, but only on fiscal issues where there is a legitimate grievance. What we have to watch out for is some Edwin-clone RINO plant candidate jumping in to act like Scott Angelle and trash every GOP candidate so whomever makes the runoff won't get their unbloodied.

Won't find a better candidate than Ralph Abraham.

He'll make a fine governor.

He is also on 970 KSYL every week. I am just worried about his fundraising ability.

With that, he will easily get my vote. Wants to reign in spending, work/education requirements for medicaid, and is a strong ally to agricultural and manufacturing sectors.

I want Eddie Rispone, bout time the Trump Wave reclaims the conservative South’s Prodigal State Louisiana with an outsider pragmatist who can self-fund

Dr. Abraham was my doctor for a couple of years. He is a conservative and he has integrity. He has my vote.
