Troy Henry calls for end to race issue in mayoral contest news coverage
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, La. – Henry told reporters that speculation about New Orleans likely having a white mayor for the first time in 30 years makes it seem the contest is over. He said it's acceptable to report polls showing Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu and businessman John Georges, who are both white, in the two top spots. But he says it's too soon to predict an outcome.
Henry, who is black, said that while the contest is under way, candidates deserve equal attention. The primary is set for February 6th, with a runoff March 6th.
