How might the New Orleans elections, particularly, the New Orleans Mayor’s race impact the upcoming Louisiana Treasurer’s race, with the elections being held the same day?
This is a question I asked Southern Media and Opinion Research’s President, pollster and political analyst Bernie Pinsonat earlier this week during a Facebook Live video discussion.
Yesterday, this site asked if anybody knows that Louisiana is in the middle of a Treasurer’s race. In part one of an ongoing interview with Southern Media and Opinion Research, its President Bernie Pinsonat said for various reasons he finds it difficult to believe any of the polls so far.
In general, there are four candidates who have chances to be in the runoff, three Republicans and one Democrat. The three republicans are Neil Riser, John Schroder, Angele Davis. The sole Democrat with any chance is Derrick Edwards.
Does anybody know there's a treasurer's race here in Louisiana to replace the last-elected official in that office, now US Senator, John Kennedy?
Yep. There is one, there is. And for the most part, right now, it's somewhat of a secret, not that the candidates are keeping it so, as of now.
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a Louisiana Treasurer’s election coming up to replace John Kennedy, now the US Senator.
Louisiana is in the middle of a "hot" election season. On the local level, there are number of seats available, particularly in New Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. Statewide, there is only one major election, that for Louisiana Treasurer due to a vacancy.
