Election Results In: Edwards, Vitter Head to RunOff



The polls are closed, the votes are counted, and the elction held few surprises in the outcome, but a couple in the numers. As expected, John Bel Edwards will be heading to a runoff with David Vitter. However, Vitter's 23 percent is much lower than expected for the favorite and Edwards' 40 percent is providing some promise to Team Blue Dat. Locally, the Quarter tax easily won approval.
