“All of our natural enemies are behind Edwards, with money from unions and trial lawyers,” said an influential PAC member with a long history with LABI, adding, "It would be a sad day for the business community in Louisiana if John Bel wins. He's a nice guy, looks good on paper, likable, West Point. There’s a lot to like, but on policy he doesn't match up.”Meanwhile, the Louisiana Sheriff's Association is backing John Bel. At first glance, that seems like a big coup but, remember, Edwards's whole family is made up of Sheriffs, practically. Also, one in particular is pretty pissed at Vitter.
Also, various Dardenne staffers are declaring their individual support for Edwards via social media. Jay Dardenne, himself, probably won't say anything at all.
