Louisiana Political Fax Weekly
by John Maginnis
While no well-known candidate has surfaced yet to challenge New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, some politicos are not giving up on finding one. A new prominent name to surface is Court of Appeal Judge Dennis Bagneris, 57, the former president pro tem of the state Senate.
Several sources say that Bagneris has been approached by people seeking a challenger to Nagin and that he has not yet turned them down. The judge did not return calls from the Fax Weekly.
