The endorsements continue to flow, one for Cantrell another for Charbonnet.
Last night, one of the leading organizations in New Orleans, The Alliance For Good Government endorsed LaToya Cantrell for New Orleans Mayor. During the general election, The Alliance backed Micahel Bagneris, who came in third place during the primary. Bagneris has also supported Cantrell for mayor over Desiree Charbonnet.
How important are endorsements by elected officials in the upcoming New Orleans Mayor’s race runoff?
Maybe not much, but it could all depend.
Michael Bagneris, who came in third during the recent New Orleans mayor’s race, has opted to support LaToya Cantrell.
This comes as no surprise.
The New Orleans Mayor’s race was boring. The main excitement was the sideshow between businessman Sidney Torres and Desiree Charbonnet. Torres wasn’t even a candidate. Since LaToya has a strong lead in the runoffs that will occur November 18, her opponent needs to go negative and she will do so.
Those were just some of the comments from political analyst and conservative talk radio host Jeff Crouere in a Facebook Live discussion Thursday night, only days after the general election.
According to the University of New Orleans, data provided by Political Science Department Professor Ed Chervenak, the turnout numbers and demography indicates that LaToya Cantrell received the best race-based cross-over support of any of the candidates.
Here are some of the details provided by the UNO survey after Saturday’s city wide elections:
So the New Orleans Mayor’s Race endorsement debate is over, at least, that controversy which has occupied the minds of many speculating who two-term Mayor Mitch Landrieu might support to replace him.
Yesterday Landrieu formally decided not to support any candidate for Mayor of New Orleans, as he released his endorsements, which did not include the position of Mayor.
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.
The New Orleans Mayor’s race is a week and a half away and pollster Ron Faucheux, who performed a poll for WWL TV and The Advocate, contends that it is anybody’s race among the top three candidates—Michael Bagneris, LaToya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet. Moreso, with high undecided vote and a tight race, Faucheux believes it all comes down to the last ten days and that the voters are still shopping.

According to the recent Clarus poll, measuring the upcoming New Orleans Mayor’s race, a women, for the first time ever, is almost guaranteed to be in a runoff for New Orleans Mayor to replace Mitch Landrieu. Perhaps more amazingly and historically, based upon the same poll and according to its President Ron Faucheux, the runoff could be between not just one, but two women.
Another New Orleans Mayor's Race poll, another outcome.
According to a new poll focused upon the New Orleans Mayor’s election, two women and one man are bunched up among the top three candidates, leaving the almost certainty that at least one woman will be in the runoffs, post general election day.
