NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)-  With election season in full swing, it might be a good idea for candidates and folks to brush up on their U.S. Constitution.

And now would be a good time to do it considering Saturday, September 17th is Constitution Day!

It’s the anniversary of the signing of one of the most important American documents, and not to mention, one of the shortest!

One of the most remarkable things about the U.S. Constitution is that it dared to imagine a nation built around the power of ideas.
