Much attention has been paid to the Governor’s race, but who will become the proverbial “one heartbeat away” from Louisiana’s chief executive?
Republican Billy Nungesser and Democrat Kip Holden are the runoff contenders for the job, which duties focus primarily on tourism. Monday, at the Baton Rouge Press Club, each was asked about his goals for the first term, if elected.
Nungesser said he’ll focus on, “Putting a plan together to restore our historical sites, our museums, and growing tourism ten percent a year over the next four years, creating thousands of jobs and economic growth.”
Holden has a different take on the job’s responsibilities.
