Seeking to stymie recall efforts against Gov. Bobby Jindal, House Speaker Chuck Kleckley and other Republican elected officials, the Louisiana Republican Party has begun a public-relations push to counter the recalls. The Advocate is reporting the state party has begun buying television ads and yard signs in the districts of Kleckley, R-Lake Charles, and Slidell Reps. Greg Cromer and Kevin Pearson, all considered abettors of Jindal’s education revamp during the recent session.

A group called the Louisiana Political Action Committee has been formed to serve as the finance arm of the recall efforts. The group has established a hotline — (337) 263-0688 — as well as a website, "Recall Bobby Jindal," where persons interested in joining the recall effort can download petitions.

According to LPAC’s website, a petition drive will be spearheaded in Lafayette at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday by Richard Miller, who can be reached at 288-7128.
