Charles Boustany Overwhelmingly Wins Re-election In Louisiana’s 3rd Congressional District
Five-term U.S. Congressman Charles Boustany has won a 6th term, defeating Republican Challenger Brian Barrilleaux and No Party candidate Russell Richard.
In 2012, Boustany defeated Jeff Landry as their two districts (District 7 for Boustany and District 3 for Landry) were combined. That race was very heated, with Boustany winning over 60 percent of the vote in the runoff against Landry.
This year, no runoff was needed as Boustany won easily.
