Donelon re-elected as La. insurance commissioner

BATON ROUGE - Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon is retaining his elected post.

Donelon, a Republican from Metairie, sailed to re-election Saturday.

He defeated little-known Democrat Donald Hodge, who criticized Donelon for receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars
in campaign donations from insurance companies.

A former lawmaker, Donelon said he's approached the insurance regulatory post fairly, increasing competition to the state and stabilizing a market ravaged by four hurricanes since 2005.

Donelon has been insurance commissioner since 2006.
