BATON ROUGE — Former U.S. Sen. John Breaux said Friday that he will run
for governor this fall if an opinion from state Attorney General
Charles Foti says he meets the legal qualifications to do so.
Breaux said he will seek the legal opinion from Foti now instead of
waiting until the Sept. 4-6 qualifying for the Oct. 20 primary. “I
expect a quick turnaround on this,” Breaux said.
“If it is affirmed by the attorney general, I plan to be a candidate for governor,” Breaux said.
