This special episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” from November 6, 2015, features Shauna Sanford’s one-on-one interviews with the two run-off candidates for governor, United States Senator David Vitter (R) and State Representative John Bel Edwards. They discuss: why they want to become governor; their families; their faith; their position on term limits; the role of the governor as a consensus builder; the possibility that they will be a one-term governor; why they oppose Common Core; negative campaign ads; the state’s incarceration rate; the public’s right to know about the personal lives of public servants; and why people should vote in this election.
