While the Louisiana Treasurer’s race did not light up the voter’s interest, yielding a roughly 13.5 percent turnout, there is a very interesting story to be told from one of the individuals involved in the election process.

John Couvillon, polled for Angele Davis’s unsuccessful run.  She was one of three Republican candidate who was trying to garner her share of the 65 to 70 percent of the vote that would be likely be split up between the three conservative candidates which included John Schroder and Neil Riser.

On Tuesday, Bayoubuzz posted the initial part of the Couvillon interview. It ended at the point in which Couvillon discussed Neil Riser’s strategy to try to obtain support of the African American community organization backing, perhaps a rather odd strategy given that he is a conservative Republican from North Louisiana.

In part two of the post-general election interview below, Couvillon President of JMC Analytics and Polling, analyzes the numbers for Neil Riser and John Schroder, assesses the Derrick Edwards domination in the African American community.
