All four Louisiana governor candidates would support putting passenger rail between Baton Rouge and New Orleans -- a departure from Gov. Bobby Jindal's position.
"Nothing is more important to the super region than making sure we have interconnectedness," said state Rep. John Bel Edwards, D-Amite, the Democratic candidate in the race.
The three Republican candidates echoed Edwards sentiment during a gubernatorial forum sponsored by Greater New Orleans, Inc., the Baton Rouge Area Chamber and other business groups Friday (Sept. 3). But two candidates -- U.S. Sen. David Vitter and Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle -- were more tepid about their support.
