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.

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.

DEM DONKYou 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.

  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.
