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.
How did Representative John Schroder beat his Republican opponents in the Louisiana Treasurer’s Race, only to come in second against Democrat Derrick Edwards, who some believe has no chance to beat his GOP foe?
Runoff for State Treasurer
As expected, the lone Democrat in the race for State Treasurer – Derrick Edwards – finished first in the field of six candidates. He garnered 31% of the vote in the primary on Saturday.
However, based upon the statewide turnout projects, it's going to be a real snoozer as in very low turnout. If ever a time for No Doze.
I did not hear a single comment or word naming the President in the recent black-targeted “Angele for Treasurer” promotion. The election for Statewide position of state treasurer is tomorrow.
Saturday is Louisiana election day for state treasurer and other races
Democrat Derrick Edwards is leading the pack with Republican Angele Davis in second, behind by 11 points but significantly ahead of her fellow Republican competitors.
JMC Analytics was commissioned to conduct the poll.
A new poll is out on the state treasurer’s race, and it shows that most voters don’t have a clue about who is running for the statewide position.
It shows that at least 75% of respondents have never heard of the three major candidates in the race – John Schroder, Angele Davis, and Neil Riser.
