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.

Well, shockingly and unfortunately, let's update the funny. Based upon yesterday's turnout, pull out the phone booth. It's needed.

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.

The runoff is November 18 in which he will be facing John Schroder, who received 24% of the vote.
