(CNN) – Four weeks and four days after the November 4 elections, it's Election Day all over again in Louisiana.

In what should be the last two federal contests of 2008, elections are being held Saturday in Louisiana's 2nd and 4th Congressional Districts, where the political process was delayed because of Hurricane Gustav.

The race in the fourth district is to replace retiring 10-term Republican Rep. Jim McCrery. Democrat Paul Carmouche is facing off against Republican John Fleming in a campaign that's now attracting national attention and money.

"It's a Republican-leaning district, but the Democrats nominated another moderate candidate," said Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of The Rothenberg Report, a nonpartisan political newsletter. "They hope to use the same formula that worked well in other conservative districts on November 4th."

    In the coming year, I resolve to be a better person, and treat others as I want to be treated. I declare that this great country will rise again in prosperity and wealth. Note: If you've tried everything, and everything has failed; try prayer. It can't hurt, and it's free.
