BATON ROUGE - Louisiana voters have decided two special state House elections, and one is going to a runoff.

Two Republicans in District 66 in Baton Rouge will face each other in a runoff on March 28. Buddy Amoroso, a current council member of the Baton Rouge Metro Council, and Darrell Ourso, a former council member will be in the runoff. Republican Hunter Greene resigned to become a judge.

In District 29 in Iberia and Vermilion parishes, Republican Blake Miguez, president and CEO of SeaTran Marine, won Saturday's special election. He will succeed Republican Simone Champagne, who resigned to become Youngsville's chief administrative officer.

In District 26 in Rapides Parish, retired Cleco executive Jeff Hall defeated two other Democrats to succeed Democrat Herbert Dixon, who resigned because he has cancer.
