This segment from the November 14, 2014, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Shauna Sanford’s on-set interview with Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo, a Democratic candidate in the December 6th run-off election in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District. He discusses: why he decided to run for office; his role as the underdog in the race; why he considers himself a conservative and independent Democrat; bridging the partisan divide in Congress; his top three priorities if elected; his positions on the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), Social Security, and Medicare; and why people should vote for him.
