Louisiana: will/can Breaux run?

Kos writes on DailyDos: A ticker at the top of the WWL-TV website says:

Governor Kathleen Blanco has requested television time tonight for a gubernatorial address that will be carried live on Eyewitness News at 6 p.m.. Sources tell Eyewitness News that Blanco will announce she is not seeking re-election.

Coupled with the sort-of launch of John Breaux's website (just harvesting emails right now), it's clear that Breaux is 1) running, and 2) has muscled Blanco out of the race.

Republicans are already attacking Breaux on his residency issues. That might suggest, among other things, that the state GOP isn't confident they can legally keep Breaux off the ballot. -- LA-Gov: Blanco is out? Breaux is in?

Kos has links to the Breaux website and the GOP ad attacking Breaux (on YouTube).
