LA-5: Mayor Jamie Mayo Polling Ahead of Incumbent

jamie-mayo-mayorLouisiana’s 5th:  Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo is now polling ahead of incumbent Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA).  Mayo is the only Democrat running in a three person race.  Mayo polled two points ahead of McAllister, and six points ahead of a third opponent, a Republican in the race.   The district is 36% African American.  

Poll Shows McAllister Race Is Wide Open, reported Roll Call on Tuesday.  “Mayo will likely solidify one spot in the runoff by coalescing the Democrats in the district, while McAllister and the four other Republicans will vie for the other spot,” reported Roll Call on Tuesday.  McAllister is scandal ridden.  This year he was caught on tape kissing a staffer — a woman not his wife.  

Is the DCCC helping Mayo out? More on that later…
