If 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.

The Gambit Weekly, always a desired endorsement, has chosen LaToya Cantrell as its preferred candidate for the upcoming New Orleans mayor.In particular, the Gambit said, “Every one of those is a make-or-break challenge. New Orleans cannot afford a mayor who faces a learning curve. Our next mayor will have to hit the ground running on Day One. We think the best person to do that is someone who has already dealt with those issues extensively, first-hand, from the ground-up as a neighborhood leader and as a proven coalition builder at City Hall. LaToya Cantrell is the only mayoral candidate who has done that — and she continues to do it every day, while the others merely talk about it.
