My Prediction: Glover, Vitter, Fleming will all be re-elected

The most exciting race in our neck of the woods has been the Shreveport Mayor’s race. This one got really personal and like it or not, that attracts a lot of attention.
The local blogging community has been all over this one, so I won’t re-hash it here.
Bryan Wooley has been in attack mode from the beginning, not unusual for someone challenging an incumbent.
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.
Other predictions
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.


  1. You think the rain might change the game in SHV?

  2. I don't think so. Personally, I don't believe that it is that close. Of course, my history of predictions is not stellar to say the least!

  3. You're probably right. It's probably not that close.

  4. yeah go for Glover, we know you're a big lib anyway, don't try to deny it.

  5. Anon at 12:56, I am not a lib...far from it, and I think Glover will win, too. It's not a stinkin' endorsement, it's a prediction.

    It just looks like it's gonna fall that way. Personally, I don't care. But, if Glover beat Jones last time, I just can't see Wooley winning.

    I could be wrong. We shall c.

  6. I think Glover has ran a good campaign. I agree with you he gets it

  7. I agree with the Glover win. Wooley is a huge turn-off with all the mudslinging

  8. GLover 48
    WOOLEY 52

    A new Era

    Glover 55
    Wooley 45

    Same old stuff

  9. Guess the chicken and limo rides did not make it for Wooley! I don't know who his advisor was but that was crazy! Lessoned learned or at least should have been!


Rules of the road:
1. No personal attacks or insults.
2. No accustory statements about wrongdoing or criminal acts against anyone.
3. Say all you want about the pros and cons concerning the candidates and the issues, or the general subject of the blog post, just follow Rule #1 and Rule #2.
