1990 Census statistics-
67.3% white, 30.8% black, 1% Asian, 0.8% Native, 0.5% other race.

Primary - 31.71% (491K votes)
Runoff - 38.83% (671K votes)
As a contrast, Cleo Fields got 36.5% (566K) in the 1995 runoff against Foster while Dollar Bill Jefferson got 30% (382K) votes in losing to Foster in the 1999 primary.
Cleo and Jefferson are as crooked as Duke ...

It has to do with *how* the device intercepts the data.
It apparently forces the phone's signal down to 2G, which is far less secure than 3G, 4G, LTE, etc., then tries to grab the data on board.
If you have certain towers which a...

Edwards in 2014.
Dems throwing in behind a convicted felon solely for name recognition and fundraising purposes shows how far the state party has fallen.
Duke in 1991 was a bit of a fluke, due to a perfect storm of circumstances.
Edwards being the Dem standard bearer was a given.
