Mitch Landrieu sworn in as mayor of New Orleans
The city of New Orleans has a new mayor: Mitch Landrieu, who is following in the footsteps of his father, Moon Landrieu. He was mayor of New Orleans three decades ago.
Landrieu, who is leaving his Lieutenant Governor's post for the job, won the race in February in a landslide vote. He ran four years ago against former mayor Ray Nagin and lost to him.
Landrieu becomes the first white mayor of New Orleans since his father left office in 1978.
