With current Congressman Charles Boustany running for the U.S. Senate, a full dozen contenders are looking to fill his seat. Eight are Republicans, as is Boustany; two are Democrats; with one Libertarian and one Independent filling out the field. All are male.

“My candidacy is a stark contrast to the other candidates,” Ellison says. “I’m the only one that took up the call of our nation to serve.”

At Thursday’s community memorial service for Baton Rouge’s fallen law enforcement officers – Brad Garafalo, Matt Gerald and Montrell Jackson -- Police Chief Carl Dabadie and State Police Commander Mike Edmonson  both spoke of their heroism.

“We gather here in memory of three remarkable men,” Chief Dabadie began. “Their work put them in harm’s way every day, and they chose to serve anyway.”

“They ran to a call where there was a gunman. They ran towards it,” Col. Edmonson said, with admiration. “And when their fellow man was down, they ran towards them.”

A colonel, a wizard, a cowboy and an Indian chief walk into the Secretary of State’s office… No, it’s not the opening line of a joke, it was what happened on the concluding day of qualifying for the November 8th elections.
