Last April I discussed how the office of the Attorney General in Louisiana had been neutered by Jindal when Caldwell joined the lawsuit against the health reform legislation that had just passed. Caldwell proved that his office would not be autonomous under Jindal.
Now, Caldwell has made his switch from DINO to a Republican. Now he doesn’t have to apologize to Democrats when he does the bidding of the Governor. He just has to answer to Republicans now who will wonder what made him a Democrat and why he was one for so long.
I wonder who was going to challenge him later this year. I am sure he will be elected again. I doubt the Louisiana Democratic Party will be able to help run an effective campaign.
