The & Norrell, 2017, Louisiana since c. 1900,

The Governors position of Louisiana is a commanding position to take on, not only because of its background information but also because of the support behind the position. (Howard & Norrell, 2017, Louisiana since c. 1900, para. 1) The gubernatorial appointment tactic has been used since the first beginnings of Louisiana, although this method caused many many disagreements, it sparked a great reign of power in the Government. Among the many problems that occured from these actions, there were taxation deficits. The first appointed governor, Huey Long, has not been a class act Citizen to begin with but throughout the years of his term he became someone they loved and loathed. (Howard & Norrell, 2017, Louisiana since c. 1900, para. 2) When he first obtained political power, it was seen that he would be trouble. He used multiple techniques that were not common in the eyes of the Louisiana House of Representatives. During his reign of government, many elected officials wanted him out of office. They even sought impeachment. (Latson, 2015, para.2) Until his assassination in 1935, Huey Long took over as the #1 Governor to get things done regardless of his actions in office. (Howard & Norrell, 2017, Louisiana since c. 1900,  p. 2) With the help and support citizens and surrounding areas, Huey Long’s organization helped the upbringing of the towns. They introduced the very stepping stones it took to make Louisiana the state it is today. Long’s team brought education, welfare, and built multiple new assets valuable to the state. (Howard & Norrell, 2017, Louisiana since c. 1900, para. 2) These new additions helped Louisiana in the long run even now, present day 2018. (Howard & Norrell, 2017,Louisiana since c. 1900,  para. 2) The politics in Louisiana have stayed the same but also changed dramatically. (Howard & Norrell, 2017,Louisiana since c. 1900,  p. 2) With Louisiana being a Republican state, politics and the election of Republican members in the government started enduring a cutthroat process. (Howard & Norrell, 2017,Louisiana since c. 1900,  p. 2) In the republican party of louisiana,  membership is open the citizens who reside in the state and they welcome those who aren’t usually associated the the same beliefs as the republicans. (“Republican Party of Louisiana,” n.d., para.7)  It has been said that  “The Republican Party is strong, principled and conservative. It is the Party that should lead the state of Louisiana. We want to represent every facet of American society, not by patronage but by principle, and not by dividing interests but by serving the good of all.” this refers to the acceptance of all who are under its protection as citizens of louisiana
