Kershaw With A Hayride Of His Own This Week

Country-singer-turned-Louisiana-Lieutenant-Governor candidate Sammy Kershaw, whose campaign has been relatively inactive over the last few weeks, is now turning up the heat with Election Day less than a week out. Kershaw’s planning a blitz this week that will put him front and center with Louisiana voters, and he’s doing it old-style – a bandwagon tour through smaller burgs all over the state where he’ll be singin’ and speakin’ to the folks.


Kershaw is calling his tour the “Real People of Louisiana Hayride,” which is a bit more awkward-sounding. It’s also a bit unfortunate, given what the term “Louisiana Hayride” evokes when politicians use it.

Nevertheless, the schedule for Kershaw’s tour makes it clear he’s looking to turn out small-town Louisiana folks as his preferred market segment as a strategy to make the runoff – just as Roger Villere is hoping to ride Tea Party support, Caroline Fayard is after black voters (particularly in New Orleans) and Butch Gautreaux is appealing to unions.
