Other than writing checks to candidates, Gov. Bobby Jindal's involvement in Saturday's legislative races was publicly sedate until former state Sen. James David Cain rankled him.
Cain, a Republican, criticized the governor for backing incumbent state Sen. John Smith in a three-person race that features Cain, Smith and Terry Fowler.
In a television ad, Cain questioned why the Republican governor would support a longtime Democrat. Smith, R-Leesville, only recently joined the Republican Party.
The governor fired back by spending nearly $100,000 of his own campaign funds to launch a television commercial criticizing Cain for using his legislative years toward his teacher's retirement. The ad is airing in the Alexandria and Lake Charles areas.

"We felt it was important to respond to James David Cain's ad. He threw mud at the governor," the governor's campaign aide, Timmy Teepell, said Wednesday.
Teepell shared a link to the governor's ad through Twitter.
"Hey, James David Cain … what goes around … comes around," he tweeted, adding that, "there's more where that came from."
Cain said he feels dismayed and shocked after welcoming Jindal into his home and helping him on the campaign trail in past governor's races.
"I just hope no one ever does his family like he's doing me," he said. ~ read more
