The New York Times has a great story on the New Orleans mayoral election, which will take place early next year:
Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu counted himself out, as did State Representative Karen Carter Peterson. Same for Arnold Fielkow, the president of the City Council; James Carville, who said he would run if the qualifying rules let him; and, naturally, Brad Pitt.
A few new candidates have been announced over the past few weeks. But as the reality settles in that on May 3, 2010, somebody other than C. Ray Nagin will be mayor, a question hangs over the city: Why do so many people feel like this is not the race the city needs?"Everyone's just kind of saying, 'Where is it?' " said Brian J. Brox, a professor of political science at Tulane University. "Where's the campaign? Where are the serious candidates? Where is everybody?"
