A go fund me campaign has been established for Tulane Professor Mia Bagneris, who was struck by a drunk driver Saturday night and is now battling severe injuries.
According to the University of New Orleans, data provided by Political Science Department Professor Ed Chervenak, the turnout numbers and demography indicates that LaToya Cantrell received the best race-based cross-over support of any of the candidates.
Here are some of the details provided by the UNO survey after Saturday’s city wide elections:
The major story line coming out of the New Orleans Mayor’s race this weekend, after Saturday’s election day is that after almost 300 years of existence, New Orleans will be run for the very first time in history, starting next year, by a woman, either Desiree Charbonnet or LaToya Cantrell. Not only are they females, but they also are African American. Thus, not only will the first female Mayor run City Hall, but, she is black.
So the New Orleans Mayor’s Race endorsement debate is over, at least, that controversy which has occupied the minds of many speculating who two-term Mayor Mitch Landrieu might support to replace him.
Yesterday Landrieu formally decided not to support any candidate for Mayor of New Orleans, as he released his endorsements, which did not include the position of Mayor.
After two weeks of slamming Desiree Charbonnet for New Orleans Mayor, after she cancelled her appearance at its Voice PAC's forum at Loyola University on September 27th, the organziation, founded by businessman Sidney Torres, who has launched into a full scale attack against her, has just released a poll showing she is trailing New Orleans Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell by two percent.
Slightly over a week to go into the New Orleans Mayor’s race and the focus seems to be on a side show involving Desiree Charbonnet-Sidney Torres than it is between any of the leading candidates. Charbonnet is a mayoral candidate, LaToya Cantrell is a major candidate, Michael Bagneris is a major candidate, Sidney Torres is not.
The New Orleans Mayor’s race is a week and a half away and pollster Ron Faucheux, who performed a poll for WWL TV and The Advocate, contends that it is anybody’s race among the top three candidates—Michael Bagneris, LaToya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet. Moreso, with high undecided vote and a tight race, Faucheux believes it all comes down to the last ten days and that the voters are still shopping.

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.
Another New Orleans Mayor's Race poll, another outcome.
According to a new poll focused upon the New Orleans Mayor’s election, two women and one man are bunched up among the top three candidates, leaving the almost certainty that at least one woman will be in the runoffs, post general election day.
