Ollie Tyler and Victoria Provenza are now facing each other in the December 6th runoff for Mayor of Shreveport. Many political observers say Tyler should have no trouble winning.

Political analyst Elliot Stonecipher tells KEEL News the goal from the very beginning was to keep Patrick Williams out of the runoff.

He says: "The fix is in for Ollie Tyler to be elected"

And Stonecipher adds:

When the people here who make these decision for us because we let them. They make one heck of a lot of money based on who the mayor is. They control the apparatus of governmental budgets in our Shreveport and Caddo Parish world. These are business folks, legal folks,  all kinds of folks who are now piling into Ollie Tyler's campaign.
