We are now eight days away from the November 4th primary election. Polls still show a considerable amount of undecided voters. Political analyst Bernie Pinsonat says, at this point, candidates kind of throw most undecideds out the window. Pinsonat says if voters are undecided this late in the campaign, they are not likely to vote. He says in the final week of the campaign, candidates, especially in the US Senate race, will begin talking more about themselves and why you should vote for them. He says you’ll still see national ads attacking Bill Cassidy and Senator Mary Landrieu in the US Senate race.

In the 5th District ULM Political Science Professor Joshua Stockley says things are starting to become a tad more clear that the front-runners could be Congressman Vance McAllister and Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo. Stockley says Mayo will get the Democratic Vote in the District and McAllister has a substantial advantage on the republican side due to name recognition. But he says with such a large district, there is always the possibility of a surprise. With Zach Dasher, Harris Brown or Dr. Ralph Abraham — it’s all about who can get out the vote
