Money in the Treasurer’s race

    State Sen. Neil Riser has raised the most and spent the most in the race for Louisiana  Treasurer, according  to  the  latest  campaign  finance  reports  from the Louisiana Ethics Commission.

This season, NFL players are continuing to protest police brutality and racial discrimination by sitting, knelling or giving a “black power” salute during the National Anthem. This has infuriated patriotic Americans who view these protests as disrespectful toward their country. It is no doubt a contributing factor toward the declining ratings of the NFL this season. 

SUPERPAC MAYOR“Money makes the elections go around, the elections go around, the elections go around.”

In today’s political world and in this case, the New Orleans Mayor’s race, money tells us much about who might be in the runoff, post-election day.  Desiree Charbonnet, has a major advantage right now in terms of cash-on-hand compared to all other candidates.  She leads with a 3 to 1 advantage over her next top-tier opponent, LaToya Cantrell, New Orleans City Councilwoman.

troy henryThe dirty attack ads and websites that define most political races are off and running in the race for New Orleans Mayor.  In an age of SuperPacs with unknown donors, we're now seeing cowardly anti-candidate sites showing up in political cyberspace without any identifiers as to who funded, built, created or responsible for the domain and sites itself.
