More changing of the guard in Louisiana
He was not held in high regard by some in Louisiana and they are glad to see him go. Perhaps he is taking the words of the new Governor seriously.
Commissioner of Agriculture Bob Odom has dropped out of the race for re-election. Commissioner Odom was heading into a runoff against Dr. Mike Strain, but now, he's going to retire. WAFB's Greg Meriwether reports on the ending of a long and colorful career for one well-known Louisiana politician.
Bob Odom will officially step down on January 14th, leaving behind a 28-year career. Some would say he turned his office into an empire, and depending on who you talk to, some would say that empire sometimes served the good of Louisiana.
