Preceding Joseph Cao in the LA-2nd-Dist was:

Democrat William Jennings "Bill" Jefferson. He served "9-terms" from 1991 to 2009. The LA-2nd-Dist includes much of the greater New Orleans area.

WJ was LA's first black congressman since the end of Reconstruction.

On Nov 13, 2009, Jefferson was sentenced to 13 years in Federal prison for bribery after a corruption investigation,

the longest sentence ever handed down to a US Congressman for bribery or any other crime !

Rasmussen Reports' Daily Presidential Tracking Poll today puts Romney ahead of President Obama 49% to 47% among nationwide voters.

Important to note, according to Rasmussen: approximately one-third of the data was collected before Romney's strong debate performance this past Wednesday. It looks like "[t]he margin of sampling error" for Rasmussen's daily tracking polls, however, falls at +/- 3 percentage points.

Still, the poll is good news for the GOP challenger.

"Today is the first time Romney has been ahead by even a single point since mid-September," Rasmussen states.

This news follows the positive trend...
