Bayou Buzz Exclusve: Louisiana Breaux Considers Legal Options For Governor's Race
Breaux said his first option is to receive Attorney General Foti’s opinion which he believes could come out later this week. Breaux said that he would be “guided” by the attorney general’s opinion. “If it is a strong ‘no’ then the decision would be easier. If it is in the middle, then, I would, with advice of counsel, consider my options. If it is a yes, I would certainly proceed as I plan to be in Louisiana this weekend and will plan to campaign every moment of the day if and when I decide to be a candidate”, said Breaux.

From a legal standpoint, Breaux said that he is also looking at a “declaratory judgment procedure” which is a legal mechanism that parties take to have a court decide an issue. The former Senator said that it would be best to get the issue of his candidacy clear as-soon-as-possible since parties would want to know what to do about contributions to the campaign so he could deal with other related matters, timely and efficiently and because the much of the Louisiana public wants to know what to do. However, upon further questioning, Senator Breaux said that he concedes that a Court might prefer to wait upon making a legal declaration until after qualifying occurs.
