Political pundit John Settle talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the information provided in the latest Shreveport mayoral race financial reports.

Settle says that the latest available info has Democrat challenger Adrian Perkins leading the pack of the five leading candidates in fundraising, including almost four times more than incumbent Ollie Tyler.

Says Settle, "(The numbers) are screaming at me because Adrian Perkins raised $43 thousand and some cents to Ollie Tyler's $12 thousand. Tyler's campaign has stalled out. I think that was clear two months ago. And his (Perkins) campaign is obviously picking up. To out-raise an incumbent mayor by $31 thousand is pretty darn strong." The latest financial report covers the campaign period from September 28 to October 17.
