schroder edwardsDemocrat 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.

no doze louisiana treasurer raceWake 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.

treasurer mayorHow might  the New Orleans elections, particularly, the New Orleans Mayor’s race impact the upcoming Louisiana Treasurer’s race, with the elections being held the same day?

This is a question I asked Southern Media and Opinion Research’s President, pollster and political analyst Bernie Pinsonat earlier this week during a Facebook Live video discussion.

Money in the Treasurer’s race

    State Sen. Neil Riser has raised the most and spent the most in the race for Louisiana  Treasurer, according  to  the  latest  campaign  finance  reports  from the Louisiana Ethics Commission.
    He has raised $442,047 and spent $315,269 as  of September 4, the cutoff date for the latest reports. But that has also left him with the least amount of money on hand for the stretch run.
