Louisiana: Runoff Election Results: After electing a new Governor outright in the November 14th election as Gov-Elect Jeff Landry (R) was able to secure majority support, Republicans finished the 2023 statewide elections with a landslide sweep. The GOP won the Secretary of State, Attorney General, and State Treasurer’s office with between 65 and 67% of the vote. Former Congressman John Fleming (R) returns to elective office with his victory as State Treasurer.
Turnout was extremely low with almost 670,000 votes cast, which is just 44% of the total participation figure from the last statewide runoff in 2019. In that election, however, the Governor’s race was being decided. The lack of the Governor and Lt. Governor being forced into runoffs is the obvious reason turnout was down by such a large proportion.
