NEW ORLEANS - Mayor Ray Nagin, whose shoot-from-the-hip style was both praised and scorned after Hurricane Katrina, narrowly won re-election over Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu on Saturday in the race to oversee one of the biggest rebuilding projects in U.S. history.I'll expound on this later, but I feel this is very significant on a long term scale. Let's go back a few months and remember he called the federal government out on its Hurricane Katrina response.
With 93 percent of the vote counted, Nagin had 53 percent, or 56,068 votes, to Landrieu's 47 percent, or 49,884 votes.
