The national conservative blogosphere is beginning to get involved in the Louisiana District 3 race, as it is a very likely Republican pickup this fall – and with two attractive conservative candidates who have begun to score national attention in spots and create some name recognition, the race between Hunt Downer and Jeff Landry looks to be one of the more interesting GOP primary campaigns in the country.
