State GOP to stay out of Boustany/Landry race
The Republican Party of Louisiana won't endorse candidates in the Nov. 6 election for races that have two or more GOP contenders seeking the same office. That includes the most high-profile Republican battle in Louisiana: the race between U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany of Lafayette and U.S. Rep. Jeff Landry of New Iberia. The two men were forced into the same district when Louisiana lost a congressional seat. State Republican Party Chairman Roger Villere tells The Times-Picayune that party officials like both Boustany and Landry and won't get involved in that race or others with at least two Republican candidates. Villere says the party will get involved in the Dec. 8 runoff if a Republican is up against a Democratic opponent.
