Catching up on LR and the lt. gov.

Posted By on Fri, Jun 2, 2006 at 8:07 PM

This has been a busy day, so I'll just mention two things I wanted to develop more.

LR MAYOR'S RACE: Last time we talked, Bill Walker was planning to be in this race. I think the former senator leads the ticket in just about any field, but doesn't get the 40 percent necessary for outright victory. The questions. then would be this: who's in the runoff and whether Walker can crossover and reach a significant white vote. This is all idle speculation, subject to re-evaluation tomorrow morning if not before.

LT. GOV'S RACE: People I like don't like Bill Halter, but they are voting for him because he's a real Democrat. And they don't like the sleazy Delta street money guys who are drawing "consultant" fees from the Wooldridge campaign. Could this be -- and it would be a great thing -- the race that proves that street money is worthless?
