Earlier this month, Trump’s campaign sent out a news release announcing former New Orleans City Councilman Jay Batt as chairman of his campaign here.Those names fit pretty well anyway. Crouere is blowhard, Jenkins is a lunatic and an adviser to Skrmetta's most recent opponent had his house firebombed. But what gives with Batt backing out? Not very Trump-like.
But on Tuesday, Team Trump sent a news release announcing Public Service Commissioner Eric Skrmetta and former State Rep. Woody Jenkins are serving as his Louisiana chairmen, and Jeff Crouere and Brian Trascher will serve as state co-chairs.
The latest release makes no mention of Batt or the announcement re-do.

Trump's Louisiana roster seems to have changed.
