LOUISIANA (KPEL News) - Voters across the 3rd Congressional District have overwhelmingly decided to send incumbent Clay Higgins back to Washington, D.C. as challenges from fellow Republican Holden Hoggatt and Democrats fell short in unseating him.


Higgins garnered nearly 65% of the vote, which is what Trafalgar polling projected him to obtain. It was a logjam for second place between Hoggatt and two Democrats - Lessie Olivia Leblanc and Tia LeBrun.
