We'll see how the down-ballot votes go, but so far, congratulations Mr. Landrieu.
You won outright majorities every way you break it down: black, white, male, female, Uptown, Downtown. You're the only thing other than the Saints that the entire city has gotten behind.
Good job, Mitch and good job, New Orleans.
UPDATE- NY Times writeup. With a nice little jab at Jefferson Parish in there.
UPDATE 2- The Mitch-mentum came through in a total repudiation of everything Nagin.
My favorite quote:
So the Mayor's race is decided. New Orleans is a predominantly black city with a white mayor-elect, a Vietnamese-American U.S. Representative, and a state governor of Indian descent. Gumbo coalitions, baby.
