Louisana: Dems and Repubs and nobody else!!!

Louisiana legislature moving to get rid of open primaries....

From the Times Picayune: ....Rep. Joel Robideaux of Lafayette, who has no party affiliation, said it was unfair to independent candidates. Robideaux said the measure would make it increasingly difficult for independents to run for Congress because they would wait on the sidelines until the general election.
"We're basically saying we're going to have a Democrat or a Republican for a congressman and nobody else is really going to have a chance," he said.....

Changes will need approval from the US Justice Department.
