boothRemember the old joke that the Louisiana Republican Party was so small, it could hold its meetings in a phone booth?

Lots have changed since then. The Party has become dominant in the very conservative state.

Despite a horrible turnout, there were some winners.

At the top of the ticket, Democrat Attorney Derrick Edwards and Republican former State Representative John Schroder prevailed in the Louisiana State treasurer's race.  The New Orleans Mayor's race also produced a runoff, between two black women,  LaToya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet.

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.

Slightly over a week to go into the New Orleans Mayor’s race and the focus seems to be on a side show involving Desiree Charbonnet-Sidney Torres than it is between any of the leading candidates.  Charbonnet is a mayoral candidate, LaToya Cantrell is a major candidate, Michael Bagneris is a major candidate, Sidney Torres is not.
