My Prediction: Glover, Vitter, Fleming will all be re-elected
In this case, I think the attacks may have backfired to some extent and energized Glover’s base.
We’ll see tonight.
My prediction: Glover gets four more years.
In other local races, I wouldn’t begin to predict the outcome of the Shreveport City Council contest.
Bossier Parish School Board District 12 is seeing a runoff between Kay Padgett Byrd and Martin Bourgeois.
Caddo School Board District 2 has a runoff between Jasmine Green and Lyndon B. Johnson.
The race for Lt. Governor, as I stated in an earlier blog post, is close. Fayard could get a boost from heavy voting in Shreveport and in New Orleans. I believe that it is too close to call.
John Fleming wins the 4th District Seat again.
David Vitter beats Melancon. Charlie just couldn’t seem to generate much enthusiasm.
Throw the bums out
Nationwide, the same broad group of independents who control every election will vote as they did in 2008 for congressional turnover. The Republicans will take the House of Representatives while the Senate is still too close to call, although a turnover there wouldn’t surprise me.
The Republicans don’t need to feel too warm and fuzzy, however, because the same people who threw the bums out 2 years ago and are doing so again today will likely do the same thing in the next 2-4 years.
