    What is proven: Rick Bond was a Ron Paul delegate in 2012. I supplied a link for that.

    There is no incumbent. There are three other "primary candidates" because Louisiana state races are jungle primaries. An Independent (and former Democratic spokesperson), a former Republican City Councillor (Darrell Ourso, out of office since 2008) and a current Republican City Councillor (Buddy Amoroso) whose district has virtually no overlap with the district in question. It's an incredibly Republican district, so a Republican WILL win.

    He's the son of a really well known physician in the area and the Vice President of the American Cancer Society of Greater Baton Rouge Leadership Council. He was endorsed by a MAJOR PAC called LABI recently.

    Economic issues--he spoke at a GOP forum where he strongly endorsed free markets. He majored in Economics. He also runs 3 businesses.
    Social issues--On his website he says he's pro-life, but is also involved in stem cell stuff (according to his bio), so it's safe to say he's not a whackjob in that regard. Constitutional issues--He's also a strong second amendment supporter as a lifetime member of the NRA--again, from his bio on the website.

    Well defined policy positions would be nice. Linking him to groups like the NRA and Cancer groups doesn't tell us anything.

    Its nice that he was a Ron Paul guy though.

    William--I could give you personal testimony about his policy positions, but I suspect you guys want news reports and other objective measures (which I understand). Those will be in VERY short order for all four candidates in this race because it's a special election--policy issues just aren't going to come out much. The election only started two weeks ago and it'll basically finish 2 weeks from now.
