Edwards: No decision on Congressional run
GONZALES- Trina Scott Edwards, the wife of former governor and convicted felon Edwin Edwards, said a national report released Wednesday suggesting Edwards had made up his mind about running for Congress was inaccurate.
Scott Edwards believes her husband was misquoted by the writer in a phone conversation recently where they discussed what it would take to enter the race. Edwards would run for the position currently held by Congressman Bill Cassidy (R- Baton Rouge) who is attempting to unseat U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D- Louisiana).
Edwards is a Democrat.
Scott Edwards said the colorful politician she's married to and shares a child with is considering a run to represent Louisiana's 6th Congressional District, but has not made up his mind.
Edwards insiders previously told WBRZ News 2 that when the former governor makes a decision it wouldn't be quietly, but at a public event or some sort of news conference.
Scott Edwards said Edwards' decision to re-enter politics is completely up to her husband.
