Is there a campaign to re-elect Edwin Edwards?
GONZALES- People are wondering if the former governor who lives here will return to politics.
A clip played on public radio Tuesday morning suggests he might be, then sparked debate about how Edwin Edwards could run, and if he could get enough support.
Edwards, who is convicted of a crime, would have to navigate through special rules dealing with convictions and the opportunities to seek a public office.
While supporters suggest he can get elected, Edwards is apparently not ready to decide just yet.
The 86-year-old and his 34-year-old wife Trina are the stars of a new reality TV show on A&E.
Recently, he said "it could not have turned out better, however, if it doesn't I'll do as they say, jokingly, 'I'll cry all the way to the bank."
Reviews of the show are mixed.
