BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Republican state Sen. Neil Riser has secured a November runoff spot in the race for Louisiana's 5th District congressional seat.
But the candidate who will compete against him Nov. 16 wasn't yet clear with half the votes tallied in Saturday's election.
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo, a Democrat, and political newcomer Vance McAllister, a Republican, are in the lead for the number two spot.
Public Service Commissioner Clyde Holloway, a Republican, and state Rep. Robert Johnson, a Democrat, were further behind them in a field of 14 candidates.
The special election was called when Rodney Alexander announced in August that he was resigning to take a job with Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration.
The sprawling district covers all or part of 24 parishes, from northeast and central Louisiana into the southeast.
