Boustany Vs. Landry To Be Determined By Runoff

As the voting result numbers began rolling in Tuesday night for the hotly contested 3rd congressional district race, it slowly became more and more apparent that a runoff between the two incumbent congressmen, Republican Charles Boustany, and Republican Jeff Landry would be the most likely outcome.

When all was said and done, Congressman Boustany received around 45% of the vote, and Congressman Landry roughly 30%.

The the night’s biggest surprise was the over 20% of the overall vote taken by candidate Ron Richard. Richard, the race’s only Democratic candidate, was able to command enough votes to force a runoff, despite spending substantially less campaign dollars than his two more well-known competitors.

Whether or not the contentious nature of the campaigns for the two congressmen will continue is yet to be seen.

The runoff is scheduled for December 8th.
