Gov. Blanco Says She should have Joined Republican Party after Katrina

Governor Kathleen Blanco, a life-long Democrat, says her greatest failure as governor was not switching to the Republican Party after Hurricane Katrina. In an interview with Gannett News reporter John Hill, Blanco says:

"When I look back at the storms, if I had the knowledge that I would be treated as a pariah by the national Republicans in office, I would have joined the Republican Party to save my state."

Meanwhile, we're hearing it will likely be sometime next week before former U.S. Senator John Breaux makes his announcement about whether he'll run for governor.
