FixCam: Betting on the Bayou

Note: Please upgrade your Flash plug-in to view our enhanced content.

Tomorrow marks the first vote of the 2007-2008 cycle. It takes place down in Louisana where Rep. Bobby Jindal is trying to erase the memory of his narrow gubernatorial loss in 2003 by winning the seat outright in tomorrow's primary.

To do that, Jindal must win more than 50 percent of the vote against a field that includes two free spenders -- state Sen. Walter Boasso (D) and businessman John Georges (I) -- as well as Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell (D).

All sides acknowledge Jindal is very close to winning without a runoff. The outcome hinges on who decides to turn out tomorrow. One x-factor in the turnout equation: The LSU football team plays at home tomorrow night against Auburn -- will Louisiana voters stop by their polling place before watching the game?
