Analyst: Dems unlikely to gain momentum in Louisiana in near future
Posted on 11/8/2018 3:03:00 AM.

Democrats came up well short of challenging any of Louisiana's five Republican incumbent Congressmen this year, with none of their candidates even cracking 40 percent of the vote.

Louisiana's Congressional delegation watching mid-term elections elsewhere
Posted on 11/6/2018 1:36:00 AM.

National pollsters predict a tight race for Congress today, giving Democrats a slight edge to retake the lower chamber, but next to no chance to gain control of the Senate.
