Democrat Derrick Edwards, who ran without the official endorsement of the Louisiana Democratic Party and without its funding, pulled off a stunning victory Saturday night in leading the field of Treasurer candidates. The runoff is November 18 in which he will be facing John Schroder, who received 24% of the vote.
Wake up everybody!! Tomorrow is the Louisiana Treasurer's Race. On the ballot are Derrick Edwards, Angele Neil Riser and John Schroder--the former, a Democrat, the latter three, Republicans.
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.
What happened to Angele Davis and US President Donald Trump?
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.
According to a new poll commissioned by the Angele Davis Campaign for Louisiana State Treasurer and conducted by by JMC Analytics and Polling, Davis is leading that race among Republican candidates and might be heading into a runoff with Democrat Derrick Edwards.
You would think Louisiana Democrats would embrace Derrick Edwards as the perfect candidate for state treasurer. But the party’s litmus test plus its aversion to looking impotent instead makes him an outcast.
At its most recent meeting, the party’s executive committee failed to endorse Edwards despite his qualifying as the only Democrat in the contest. Moreover, he ticks off two victim class boxes, racial minority and person with disability; Democrats generally allege that American society discriminates against minorities and the disabled, mandating increased government efforts to redistribute resources their way. And, Edwards seems competitive as he polls in the lead for the spot.
According to John Couvillion of JMC Analytics and Polling, the Louisiana Treasurer's race is currently a two candidates contest.
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.
