Surprise Dem Candidate For Governor Qualifies Challenging Edwards
After Day 1 of qualifying, we now have five candidates for Louisiana Governor. Two candidates seemed to come out of nowhere: one Republican, "Live Wire" Landry and one Democrat, "Omar" Dantzler. Until that point, most analysts called for Governor Edwards to run "unopposed" by another Democrat. But Dantzler, a community organizer from Hammond, threw his hat in the race.
See his Facebook announcement below.
The full list of candidates for Governor can be found on the LA Secretary of State website.
