The Shreveport Mayor's race is off and running. Several candidates have full campaign organizations in place and they are busy vying for money and voters.

Mayor Ollie Tyler held a fundraiser as she announced a run for re-election. She will have at least 6 challengers and a couple of other men are thinking about getting in the race. We do know about a couple of possible contenders who say they will not be running. Shreveport City Councilman Jerry Bowman announced this week he will not run for Mayor. Retired SPD Detective Rod Demery has also announced he won't be in the race. He has been approached to be the city's next police chief by at least one candidate.

Here are the people we know are either in or those who are seriously considering running. Do you have a favorite yet?
