dems get 2nd chance in rodney's district

From Reuters: Ballot registration reopens in Louisiana's 5th District, after a judge determines Rodney Alexander "sought to manipulate the ballot system". There was a tough call! The judge could have removed Alexander from the ballot or offered no remedy, so this is a bit of middle ground. It remains to be seen if Dems will be able to take advantage of it. The district is more conservative than liberal.

This lawsuit may be one reason the Dem party hasn't fallen in behind Tisa Blakes--there may be someone else on their radar. We'll soon see.
