Congressman Cedric Richmond and Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden met Monday at a Baton Rouge Press Club forum. The two Democrats are running to represent Louisiana’s 2nd congressional district, which runs from New Orleans, up the River Parishes to North Baton Rouge.
Louisiana’s 2nd congressional district holds much of New Orleans and follows the Mississippi River up to North Baton Rouge. Democrat Cedric Richmond of New Orleans currently represents the district in Washington, D.C. and is running to keep it in the November election.
There's just one week left until qualifying, and so far we’ve covered the Governor’s race and the candidates for Attorney General. But little has been said about the four candidates vying for Lieutenant Governor - the person who will be in charge when the Governor is out of state and the head of Louisiana tourism.
Mayor-President Melvin "Kip" Holden of Baton Rouge joins the show for the full hour today to discuss the Fairness Ordinance, his bid for Lieutenant Governor, the latest from the City of St. George proposal, and much, much more.
