This week, Louisiana’s Republican-In-Name-Only Attorney General Buddy Caldwell stood side by side with hard-left Democrat State Representative Barbara Norton at her re-election announcement in Shreveport.
Norton is a prominent member of the Democratic Caucus and the Legislative Black Caucus. Infamously known for believing “shall” does not mean “got to” in legislative language, Norton has been one of the Legislature’s staunchest supporters of Obamacare, gun control, and higher taxes.
So it comes as no surprise that Caldwell, who serenaded and praised Mary Landrieu at Washington Mardi Gras, would endorse another leftist. After all, Caldwell was a Democrat elected official for over 30 years before changing his registration to save his taxpayer-funded job.
This latest episode is further proof that Caldwell changed his party but certainly not his principles.
