lagop damageThe Republican Party is stating it is in active mode.

In an email just released the GOP is reminding all that there is an election tomorrow and votes are important to help John Schroder win the Louisiana Treasurer’s seat.

  schroder edwards  Saturday, November 18 is election day for those few dedicated souls who will bother to go to the polls and vote.
    The only statewide race on the ballot is the special election for state treasurer.  There will be a smattering of local elections, such as for mayor of New Orleans and the Caddo Commission.
    The special election for state treasurer is to replace John Kennedy, who was elected to the U.S. Senate.

chick laIs there too much “sky is falling” projections for John Schroder in the upcoming Louisiana Treasurer’s Race? Perhaps, and possibly, this publication has contributed to the suspense and speculation.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that Schroder might have a very difficult time getting out the vote, sufficiently so, his opponent, Derrick Edwards, an African American Democrat, might somehow squeeze into the victory column. I noted that there were no real major contested elections in Louisiana other than the race for Orleans Parish. There is one election, a Northshore House race between two Republicans fighting for Schroder’s old House position, which he vacated to run for Treasurer.

crouere radioRoughly a week ago, when looking at the upcoming statewide elections, I threw out the possibility of an "upset of upsets" in favor of attorney and accountant Derrick Edwards, the Democratic Party candidate in the Louisiana Treasurer’s race, possibly winning against John Schroder, a Republican.

peterson kcpIt's Official!! The controversy behind the Louisiana Democrats not backing the party candidate for Louisiana Treasurer is now of the past.

Earlier this week, the party's executive committee, via its party chairperson, Karen Carter Peterson, announced it was recommending the endorsement of Derrick Edwards.  Two days after the general election, the Louisiana Republican Party endorsed its candidate John Schroder.

Who will be the last white Democratic legislator in Louisiana?

The past decade and now in the age of Trump-dominance, is it possible that the Louisiana might not have any more white legislators?

We're roughly two years away from either re-electing John Bel Edwards for Louisiana Governor or selecting his successor. Louisiana, being that dark blood-rich red state comprising a majority of Democrats under Republican dominance, will have a choice.  Does it follow the rest of the Deep South and elect only Republicans for major statewide office or, does it buck the trend once again, and back the Democrat incumbent?

According to a just-released poll, commissioned on behalf of Louisiana State Representative candidate, Rob Maness, Colonel Maness is in good position in his third attempt for elective office.

The poll was conducted by John Couvillon and JMC Analytics and Polling.

Derrick Edwards, the Louisiana Democratic Party choice for Treasurer probably will no longer be unendorsed for the position of State Treasurer. Last week, the Republican Party announced it's support of John Schroder as it's party's choice for the position after he came in second place on election day. Edwards and Schroder are heading into the runoffs scheduled November 18. Edwards was the only Democrat running for Treasurer during the general election but was unendorsed by the Democrats. He came in first, besting Schroder and two other Republicans, State Senator Neil Riser and former Commissioner of Administration for the Bobby Jindal campaign, Angele Davis.
