LFC Daily News Clips | November 9, 2016

Good Morning

It was a clean sweep for LFC supported candidates in the Orleans Parish School Board races with three pro-school choice candidates winning their contests. Congratulations to Leslie Ellison, Woody Koppel and Nolan Marshall, Jr.

Pro-school choice candidates prevail nationwide. 80 out of 82 AFC-supported candidates won their respective races across the country, with one race still too close to call, and there were numerous victories in non-targeted races.

Putting it all in perspective: If you’re in D.C. tomorrow, join us for post-election discussion featuring Campbell Brown, Nina Rees, Kevin Chavous and Greg Brock, E² Elections & Education | 2017 and Beyond.

Enjoy your day! – Paul
