What the heck happened in the governor’s race Saturday night? Dr. Michael Henderson with the LSU Public Policy Research Lab says the runoff matchup really isn’t a surprise.
“I mean, we’ve known for months that this looked like it was going to be Vitter and Edwards,” Henderson told the Baton Rouge Press Club Monday.
“You’ll hear some folks say, ‘Well, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute! Vitter’s numbers were coming down in those closing weeks, and it was tighter than expected.’ Sure, it was tighter than expected maybe five months ago, but it was not tighter than expected given polling results in recent weeks.”
