Mitch Landrieu Backing Rose Ledet


  Civil District Court Judge Rose Ledet has picked up the endorsement of Mayor Mitch Landrieu in her bid for the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal this fall. Ledet is running for the seat currently held by Chief Judge Joan Bernard Armstrong, who has announced her retirement. So far, Ledet has no announced opponents. Landrieu's support, which came via an affidavit, adds even more weight to an already long list of support that Ledet has lined up for her race. Qualifying for five seats on the Court of Appeal is July 7-9 — the same time as qualifying for U.S. Senate, Congress, First City Court judgeships, and special elections for lieutenant governor and Jefferson Parish president. July 7-9 is also expected to be the qualifying period in a special election yet to be called in state Senate District 2. That seat is currently held by Sen. Ann Duplessis, who is joining the Landrieu administration. — Clancy DuBos
