Louisiana results for every midterm race
In deep-red Louisiana, Democrats only control one of the state’s six congressional seats up for reelection. They don’t have much of a chance of flipping the others.
The biggest race today is a heated contest for an open secretary of state seat — the state’s third-highest-ranking position. Republican Tom Schedler, who served as Louisiana’s secretary of state since 2010, resigned in May amid published allegations that he had sexually harassed his secretary for years. The race to replace him is a nine-way scramble between relative political unknowns in the state. Among the nine, only two are Democrats.
Mobilizing voters in Louisiana has always been a challenge for Democrats in the state, which is expected to have very low voter turnout. And this year, again, the vast majority of the voters are projected to be older and more conservative.
The state’s legislative body, which is held by Republicans with comfortable majorities in both chambers, is not on the ballot today.
President Trump also holds one of his highest approval ratings in the country in Louisiana, according to Morning Consult.
