Have You Seen The Louisiana Federation For Children’s New Ad Hitting John Bel Edwards?

They’re not playing around.

The ad goes with a web site launched earlier this week at JohnBelFails.com, which contains this image…

The footnotes to the above are these…

Edwards has protested that he’s not opposed to charter schools or even the voucher program, even though he voted against the bill establishing it as a statewide initiative. Edwards says that’s because he thought it was unconstitutional, and the courts agreed, but of course he made no effort to remedy its deficiencies before it passed so obviously that can be taken in concert with his voting pattern of defending failed traditional schools at every turn.

The Federation for Children has been marking these votes and identified Edwards as a nightmare candidate for school choice at the outset of the campaign. And now they’ve produced what might be the most effective ad of the entire cycle.
