LaToya Surging Ahead in Fundraising

With just a little more than a week remaining in the campaign, respected political columnist Stephanie Grace says in her latest column that, “Cantrell has now become the juggernaut while Charbonnet lags.” Grace is referring to the latest campaign fundraising reports from the state, which shows LaToya with more than $350,000 in cash on hand and Charbonnet running a deficit.

Grace says that the candidates have “switched positions” when it comes to fundraising and that people are recognizing the building momentum for LaToya. A final note is that LaToya also continues to show grassroots fundraising with more than 1,000 individual contributors and the majority of these people have contributed less than $250, proving that LaToya is truly the people’s candidate, who will create a better, more equitable and safer New Orleans.
