Governor Deal and the Recovery School District

Joash mentioned this in a post last week when Bobby Jindal came to down to stump for the governor, but I think this needs a little bit more discussion. I was kind of surprised that it hadn't come up in any of the comments either.

GOP Optimism Growing as Election Approaches

Visiting Florida for the state Republican Party's annual fundraising dinner, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal gave a warning that would have seemed laughable just a few months ago. "This election is too important for the people of Florida, it is too important for our country, to take this for granted," Jindal told supporters of Gov. Rick Scott's re-election who gathered outside the Grand Floridian Resort before the 2014 Victory Dinner to greet Scott, Jindal and others who arrived by bus.

Common Core criticism not limited to the right

While the push to derail Common Core is often attributed to Republicans and conservatives, Louisiana teacher unions that are mostly aligned with Democrats are nearly as vocal in blasting the overhaul. Both the Louisiana Federation of Teachers and the Louisiana Association of Educators backed legislation earlier this year that would have scrapped the standards in favor of others.

It has been an intriguing journey since legislative leaders quietly cut a special retirement deal for the powerful head of the Louisiana State Police. Clearly the Jindal administration had hoped the story would lose traction after State Police Col.

Planned Parenthood's Colo., N.C. ad buy

Planned Parenthood Votes will launch its first TV ads of the year today, a nearly million-dollar buy aimed at countering Republican Senate candidates who recently embraced making oral contraception available over the counter and boosting Democratic incumbents Kay Hagan and Mark Udall. The group casts this proposal, newly popular with some GOP candidates, as more expensive for women with a $500,000 buy in the Raleigh, North Carolina, market and a $400,000 buy in the Denver market.

It's come to this: Planned Parenthood now attacking GOP plans to expand access to birth control

An growing roster of Republican candidates across the country are embracing Gov. Bobby Jindal's proposal to make birth control pills available for adult women over-the-counter, without a prescription. This trend is tossing a wrench into the Left's paint-by-numbers attack strategy of painting the GOP as obsessed with "restricting access" to birth control - which nobody was advocating anyway.* The idea is to bombard young women with multimillion-dollar ad campaigns in order to scare them with this fiction, thus shoring up Democrats' wide advantage within the key demographic.

Arne Duncan Sounds Partnership Theme in Trip Through South

Amid the backdrop of marching bands, pep rallies, and photo ops, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan's 2014 back-to-school bus tour crystallized the Education Department's intention to recast its role from one of a disruptor that prods states to take on difficult education policy overhauls to one of supportive partner in implementation. The theme of partnership was center stage in all of Mr. Duncan's stops on his seven-city, three-day trip that crisscrossed Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee.

Birth control bait-and-switch [Editorial]

In what on the surface seems like a remarkable turnaround, a number of conservative Republican Senate candidates this year are supporting a proposal to expand access to birth control by making it available without a prescription as an over-the-counter medication. Wider access to birth control traditionally has been a Democratic issue, so Republicans ' sudden embrace of it seems almost too good to be true.

Why isn't Bobby Jindal helping with Bill Cassidy's Senate campaign?

When taking to national media outlets, Gov. Bobby Jindal has said over and over again that his current top priority is helping Republicans in the November elections. The Louisiana governor has said he won't be making any decision about his own 2016 presidential campaign until 2015, in part to concentrate on getting Republicans elected in this year's congressional and gubernatorial campaigns.
