Scalise cruises to 1st District win
NEW ORELANS - Early numbers show Rep. Steve Scalise will handily beat his lesser-known opponents in the 1st District congressional race.
Scalise (R) was recently appointed to House Majority Whip, the first majority whip from Lousiana since 1971. With more than half the precincts reporting, Scalise had a 78 percent lead.
He faces two Democrats, Lee A. Dugas and retired Air Force master sergeant Manillo "Vinny" Mendoza, as well as Libertarian Jeffery "Jeff" Sanford.
