Death of the Republican Party?
The death of the Republican Party might be a little premature. Anh “Joseph” Cao defeated William Jefferson in New Orleans. This particular district has an 11% Republican registration. If Obama was a factor at all in the general, it was his lack of an endorsement that killed any enthusiasm Jefferson might have been able to muster. As it was, due to the delay in voting due to Gustav, lack of support from the top, and of course, Jefferson’s image, he went down. The party of “change” lost to the “culture of corruption”, represented by a Vietnamese refugee from the fall of Saigon.
Additionally, in western Louisiana, Republican John Fleming defeated Democrat Paul Carmouche. Obama did endorse Carmouche. That apparently didn’t help enough.
So much for rhetoric.
