bloomThe highly-combative and hotly contested race for Council District B in New Orleans has been challenged and certified with Seth Bloom claiming there were numerous irregularities but also stating the impossibility to determine the outcome notwithstanding the errors.

Thus, Bloom congratulated the winner in the race, Jay Banks.

mitch turkeyToday on the Ringside Politics radio show (M-F, 7-11 am, WGSO 990-AM & www.Wgso.com) we conducted our annual listener poll, asking the audience who should be our “Turkey of the Year.”

The competition is always spirited for there are so many potential turkeys to consider in 2017. Previous winners have included former President Barack Obama, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, former House Speakers Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, former Florida Governor Jeb! Bush, Ohio Governor John Kasich, U.S. Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former New Orleans Mayor and current federal inmate Ray Nagin and former U.S. Congressman and recently released federal inmate William “Dollar Bill” Jefferson.

chervenak edThe New Orleans elections 2017 is over.

Now come the post mortems and the efforts by those elected to office to put together city government for the next three and half years.

The pollster that was right on the mark this election cycle was Ed Chervenak, Professor of University of New Orleans.

IA cantrellThe Desiree Charbonnet campaign is on the attack with two days left in the New Orleans Mayor's race against LaToya Cantrell. On Tuesday the University of New Orleans poll indicated that Charbonnet trails Cantrell by 11 points. Last week, another poll evidenced an 18 point gap.

Another poll evaluating the New Orleans Mayor's race shows that LaToya Cantrell is leading Desiree Charbonnet, however, this one by eleven points. Last week, a different poll, that one by the Democratic Education Reform, indicated that Cantrell was ahead by 18 points. The election is now less than five days away.

charbonnetThe New Orleans Mayor’s race runoff is now eight days away. Lots can happen between now and then.  But here are some quick observations, and some relevant tweets worth reviewing.

Fundraising

cantrell charonnetNow, for a New Orleans Mayor’s Race wrap:

LaToya Cantrell has become the money machine, not so, Desiree Charbonnet. The Inter-Denominational Ministerial Alliance, who already supported Desiree Charbonnet has injected itself into the race again, calling for Cantrell’s resignation, which prompted her quick rebuke.  Also, a date has been set for the WWL TV forum, two days from election day.

The old famous adage, “money is the mother’s milk of politics” might be also said, “milking a scandal is the "mother" of all political campaign tactics”.

No doubt, the Desiree Charbonnet campaign is in "udder" "spread the Latoya Cantrell credit card controversy mode.  Just how much mileage and bad press it can get from it before New Orleans Mayor's Race election day, is a topic for serious discussion. Or, better said--will voters leave home and vote for Cantrell, without it (being top of mind)?

shocked pollSurprised? Indeed. Well, how about, somewhat shocked!

This morning, I discovered that LaToya Cantrell is ahead of Desiree Charbonnet by a whopping 18 points, according to a research firm LJR Custom Strategies on behalf of the local branch of a national education reform organization, Democrats for Education Reform.
