“There’s an old saying in politics about ‘knowing where the bones are buried.’ Lamar knows that in Louisiana, sometimes the bones are buried and sometimes they’re above ground. We need folks like him to hold our politics and our politicians accountable.”
– James Carville
“Lamar and Cayman are two of Louisiana’s brightest political minds.”
– Edwin Washington Edwards, former four-term Louisiana Governor, Congressman, State Supreme Court Justice, State Representative, and City Councilman
“There are few people in Louisiana who can get to the heart of a policy matter faster — and describe it with more clarity and vision — than Lamar White. Lamar not only knows policy; he also has an uncanny instinct for Louisiana politics. He is one of the brightest and most creative minds in the Louisiana political world today.
– Robert Mann, journalist, historian, former aide to U.S. Sen. Russell Long, U.S. Sen. John Breaux, Gov. Kathleen Blanco, professor of political communications at Louisiana State University’s Manship School of Mass Communications, where he holds the Manship Chair.
“Lamar has done some of the most important recent journalism in Louisiana—without a staff or libel lawyers to back him up.”
– Jerry Ceppos, Dean of Louisiana State University’s Manship School of Mass Communications
“Research is the most critical component of any campaign. If you are running for political office, leading a public affairs campaign, or just trying to learn how to be more effective on a particular issue, it starts with the building block of investigative research. Lamar White has shown that with dogged research skills, colorful writing, and a keen ability to sniff out nuggets of truth, you can be quite an effective operative.”
– Bradley Beychok, Louisiana born Political Operative and President of Media Matters for America
“(White) best exemplifies the power of the pen and its ability to change the mighty.”
– The Advocate
“White, a self-described ‘Louisiana boy’ has expanded his platform, joining a band of independent political bloggers who can drive coverage and threaten careers.”
– The Washington Post
