Do the math
Artis Cash, who’s looking to unseat U.S. Rep. Jim McCrery in the Nov. 7 election, received the endorsement of the Louisiana Democratic Party’s State Central Committee. He received 89 votes compared to 18 votes for the other Democratic contender, Patti Cox.
The committee is comprised of a male and female representative from each of the 105 state House districts.
105 districts x 2 representatives = 210 possible votes.
89 votes for Cash + 18 votes for Cox = 107 votes cast.
210 possible votes – 107 votes cast = 103 no votes.
To be fair, the DSCC has about 20 vacancies, meaning in reality about 56 percent of its group cast ballots to endorse Cash.
Wow, somebody hire these folks to boost voter turnout.
