Cazayoux Leads in Fundraising

Mar 26, 2008 Full story: www.2theadvocate.com 16

With the short special election span for Louisiana’s 6th Congressional District seat, candidates continued to grab political contributions at a feverish pace while spending the money as quickly as it arrived, according to the latest fundraising reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

State Rep. Don Cazayoux continued to dominate by collecting $307,450 in the one-month reporting period that ended March 16. The reports were required to be filed before midnight Monday. Cazayoux, 44, continued to get hefty help from labor unions. The National Association of Journeyman and Apprentices, the United Transportation Union and the United Steelworkers contributed $10,000 each to his campaign. The New Roads Democrat also collected $34,400 from ACTBLUE, a national Democratic Party political action committee.

Since you like Rolfe, you might want to check out this website - he's the driving force behind the "get the people involved" campaign. Seems to be pretty effective.

He is indeed a good man, but you are judged by the ones you associate with. Look down the Congressional Democratic roster and their views to see his potential peers.

And ask this question of yourself. If a Republican candidate for President is running against a Democrat with leftist non "John Breaux" views, who would he vote for, that response is all you need to know.
The answer is the Democrat!
He has to go with his party in order to stand on any commitees, introduce any meaningful legislation, and have any real chance of favorable standing within the party.

Not picking on Don, the same stands for the Republican candidate. It is just a matter of opinion on which group you trust to do the right things for our country and follow Constitutional law.

Why on earth would you say this? We should all be a supporter of Don Cazayouz. He is a democrat, but, he has done a lot for Pointe Coupee, WBR, & Iberville. It would be nice to really have someone in Congress that could speak for us. Unlike Mary Landrieu. He is an honest and good man and I think everyone should get behind him and support him.

This is why I have my concerns. As a person, father, and citizen of Pointe Coupee I have no doubts. As a conservative democrat making a difference, no way.
The last conservative democrat to run for Senate Joe Lieberman of Conn was all but kicked out of the party and forced to run as an independent. This was only three years after being the standard bearer as vp candidate for the party.
Don will have to support Barack Obama if he's the party's candidate for President. To go on record and support a candidate out of party is tantamount to political suicide.
If you want to vote for a fine person, you cannot do any better than a vote for Don. But I must say voting is not a contest of popularity, but a contest of views and policy. I say to you make your choice of which is more important, but please vote, it's your responsibility as a citizen.

I agree with you. I am a registered republican. But, does he have to say who he supports for president if he wins?

i think he votes for more taxes which the middle class people DO NOT NEED. He will be thinking the same way NANCY PELOSKI thinks, which is raise, raise, raise taxes.......
