Final Louisiana Senate debate focuses on Trump Supporter David Duke’s anti-jewish rhetoric & draws protests –

To say that the night revolved around David Duke would be an understatement. The debate was held Dillard University a historically black Institution. Because appears that there would be massive protests there was actually no audience in the hall. David Duke I spoke as if he were Donald Trump’s running mate. He attacked Jews and was striking a similar tone to Donald Trump’s. Remember that David Duke is running for the Senate as a republican in the state of Louisiana. Outside of the hall there were demonstrations  which led to some of the protesters being tear-gased.

Voters Head to Primaries and Caucuses in 5 States –

These relatively small states are having their elections and caucuses today.  In my opinion they will have more impact on the Republican side then on the Democratic side. I say this because these are closed Republican primaries and caucuses. Only Republicans can vote here so unless you are a registered Republican you cannot go and vote for Donald Trump. He cancelled yesterday speaking at one of the most important meetings of conservatives (CPAC) at the last minute to go and do a campaign rally in Wichita Kansas. The head of CPAC yesterday basically said that people who don’t show I really not true conservatives. I believe that Donald Trump is worried that his momentum will be stalled here and much can be said about how he perceives himself in the race. He wants to always look like a winner and losing in these courses would be bad for him. And it’s hard for his rationale on winning the nomination.
As for the Democrats these are caucus  States and Hillary Clinton does not do as well as Bernie Sanders in caucus states. That being said the number of delegates is small but a loss is a loss and I hope that Hillary goes well. She has a great ground game in the States and because there is almost no pulling the outcome is completely up in the air.
