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.


Also, according to Faucheux, incumbent City Councilman Jason Williams and Helena Moreno are inching close to winning the Council-at-large seats outright, although general election victories for the 2nd and 3rd highest New Orleans elective offices are relatively rare.

Today, Bayoubuzz, via Facebook Live, will be asking Faucheux questions about his findings about his Mayoral and City Council at large seats survey. You can join in and ask questions via phone or via Facebook comment, too.  The program begins at 3:45 (roughly).
