Who Won Louisiana Elections in 2012?

Charles Boustany
Date: 
Nov 6, 2012

Incumbents won all the congressional races in Louisiana in 2012. However the 3rd district had two incumbents running. Because of the 2010 census Louisiana lost a seat in the House. The 7th District which Charles Boustany represented was no more, so he ran in the 3rd against Jeff Landry. The race went to a runoff, with Boustany winning.

All the other incumbents won rather easily.

Mitt Romney won Louisiana's eight electoral votes with 57.8% of the vote.
