Hello, central casting

Louisiana Democrats are looking to fill a position in 2016.
Now, Democrats are analyzing what went right for Edwards and whether they can re-create the magic political mix in what could be a heated U.S. Senate race in 2016.

“It was a lot of hard work that’s not very sexy,” said Louisiana Democratic Party Executive Director Stephen Handwerk. “That work and that investment and those relationships that were built paid off.”
Kind of hard to replicate that path to victory exactly. Unless someone at Dem Party HQ  has a copy of the Canal Street brothel's client list laying around somewhere. At the same time, some strategic approaches may carry over.
Handwerk said the party’s current inclination is to attempt to mimic the gubernatorial race — to come up with a strong, possibly lesser-known candidate to rally behind early while Republicans battle each other for a spot in the runoff.

He said party leaders are waiting until after the holidays, though.
State Democrats have been complaining for years now about their short bench. I wonder who they think might fit this bill for them.
