New Orleans Elections: News articles about the New Orleans elections and New Orleans Mayor's race, New Orleans Mayor race

The New Orleans Mayor’s race was boring. The main excitement was the sideshow between businessman Sidney Torres and Desiree Charbonnet. Torres wasn’t even a candidate. Since LaToya has a strong lead in the runoffs that will occur November 18, her opponent needs to go negative and she will do so.

Those were just some of the comments from political analyst and conservative talk radio host Jeff Crouere in a Facebook Live discussion Thursday night, only days after the general election.

There was one indisputable fact during the New Olreans Mayor’s race—turnout was very poor. There seems to be one logical conclusion for the runoff. The Mayor’s race and the New Orleans elections, in general, are bound to get negative and dirty.

Here are some of the details provided by the UNO survey after Saturday’s city wide elections:

cantrellThe major story line coming out of the New Orleans Mayor’s race this weekend, after Saturday’s election day is that after almost 300 years of existence, New Orleans will be run for the very first time in history, starting next year, by a woman, either Desiree Charbonnet or LaToya Cantrell.  Not only are they females, but they also are African American. Thus, not only will the first female Mayor run City Hall, but, she is black.

Perhaps.

Yesterday Landrieu formally decided not to support any candidate for Mayor of New Orleans, as he released his endorsements, which did not include the position of Mayor.

After two weeks of slamming Desiree Charbonnet for New Orleans Mayor, after she cancelled her appearance at its Voice PAC's forum at Loyola University on September 27th, the organziation, founded by businessman Sidney Torres, who has launched into a full scale attack against her, has just released a poll showing she is trailing New Orleans Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell by two percent.  

 

teddieIf you never thought the ongoing political circus between New Orleans Mayoral candidate Desiree Charbonnet and businessman Sidney Torres could ever get any more bizarre, brother, you are mistaken. It has.  Judging from developments in the past week, expect more media explosions and disruptions.  Things are going to get worse as election day creeps near.
