Mayor Sharon Weston Broome wins 2nd term
BATON ROUGE - Incumbent Sharon Weston Broome will have a second term as mayor-president of East Baton Rouge.
Broome defeated Republican challenger and former State Rep. Steve Carter.
"Mayor Broome was able to mobilize her base and maintain some of the support she received in the Primary," said Clay Young, political analyst. "It underscores the importance of having a solid 'Get out the vote' offense. She also avoided having any major political missteps in an election year."
