So this weekend was certainly interesting! Let’s look at the results:
State Legislature District 5
Lawyer Alan Seabaugh defeated political newcomer and banker Harold Turner. Things seemed to turn ugly at the end, but I think that the voters ultimately made the right choice.
Republican Secretary of State Jay Dardenne came out on top of a very large field, with Democrat Caroline Fayard taking the second spot on the Nov 2 ballot. Sammy Kershaw made a good showing, but surprisingly dismal returns doomed State GOP Chairman Roger Villere.
After a fake poll had Wooley falling fast to Caddo Commissioner David Cox- the election predictions were all up in the air. But many predicted from the start that it would be a Wooley/ Glover showdown. And thats exactly what we are going to get. Look for this one to get really hot real fast!
On another note- Parker Ward proved my prediction wrong, I said he would get 100 votes, he got 175.
C O Simpkins will face Rose Wilson McCulloch.
Sheeva Sims, who lost by 6 votes in 2006, will face former Scary Mary staffer Jeff Everson.
Republican Oliver Jenkins blew independent Jake Toloso out of the water with 84% of the votes.
Conservative Independent Phillip Templeton came out on top and will face Michael Corbin in the run off.
Yours truly garnered 13% of the vote, and would like to thank all of her supporters very much for all their kind words, good wishes, and especially for their votes!
Sam Jenkins defeated Jerry White with 71% of the votes.
Look for things to heat up over the next month, and don’t forget about the midterm elections where Congressman Fleming and Senator Vitter will be up for reelection!
