Eddie Rispone’s campaign has come out with an attack on Ralph Abraham in the first shot in the 2019 campaign to unseat John Bel Edwards in Louisiana. In what is reminiscent of the last race where Jay Dardenne and Brian Angelle incessantly sniped on Sen. David Vitter, which allowed “Honor Code” to walk into the Governor’s office, this is not what a smart campaign looks like.

The focus is the Governor!!!

“Louisiana needs a conservative outsider to help create jobs and improve our state's economy,” Baton Rouge businessman Eddie Rispone’s campaign tweeted Wednesday around the same time that a post went up on a conservative blog attacking Abraham’s conservative credentials.

The post on the Conservative Intelligence Briefing website describes Rispone flatteringly as an “outsider” in the race and takes aim at comments Abraham made amid reports on then-candidate Donald Trump’s lewd Access Hollywood tape remarks. The Conservative Intelligence blog says Abraham “crossed a line” by calling for Trump to remove himself from the GOP ticket and calls him a "top #NeverTrump target."
