SORT BY Relevancy
From the primary election to the runoff, early voting has increased 47 percent among black voters and 30 percent among white voters. Early voting has also jumped in a number of the larger urban areas -- Caddo/Shreveport (109 percent increase), Orleans (98 percent increase) and East Baton Rouge (88 percent) -- according to Couvillon. That would appear to be good news for state Rep. John Bel Edwards, the Democratic candidate for governor, rather than U.S. Sen. David Vitter, the Republican. Edwards has also been ahead in recent runoff polls. But experts and political operatives warned against drawing too many conclusions from preliminary early voting turnout. The runoff election is a different story. It's expected to be a close election, and Democrats have efforts underway to get people to participate in early voting. The Democratic Party says it has people in every parish working on early voting efforts. After the primary election, the Edwards campaign even said it expected voter turnout to be higher overall in the runoff.NOLA.com
Charlie Cook says;"this is a make or brake election for the Democratic party in Louisiana'".

Why Publishing A Book Gives Your Instant Authority On A Subject is our topic on The Core Businesss Show with Tim Jacquet. You probably won't make much money, but a book can be a great marketing tool and credibility builder. When corporate philanthropy consultant Susan Hyatt wrote a book, Strategy for Good: Business Giving Strategies for the 21st Century, it went on to win four publishing awards and got testimonials from top execs at Pfizer, Timberland, and Starbucks. Most important, it caught the attention of potential clients. "It does open doors," she says. "The credibility is big. If people know you've written a book, they do take notice. It's attracted new business for me, for sure." Yet it sold just 1,000 copies. Books by or about entrepreneurs rarely sell well (unless they include the name Musk, Gates, Jobs, or Buffett), so if you're considering writing a book, know that you most likely won't make a dime. In fact, if you self-publish instead of working through a traditional publisher, you could spend tens of thousands of dollars. That's why you should treat your book like a marketing investment that you can use to boost your company's bottom line. Apple Capital Group, Inc. and The Core Business Show
