Another La. House seat settled after candidate withdraws
BATON ROUGE - Only 14 Louisiana House seats remain to be decided in the Nov. 21 runoff election, after another seat was settled when a candidate dropped out of the race.
Chad Brown, a Democrat from Plaquemine, won a vacant House seat when his opponent, James Barker of Plaquemine, withdrew from the race.
Brown, an attorney, led a four candidate field in the Oct. 24 primary with 46 percent of the vote. Barker, an independent and Iberville Parish sheriff's deputy, came in second with 26 percent.
The district, which includes Iberville and Assumption parishes, had no incumbent because Rep. Karen St. Germain, a Pierre Part Democrat, could not seek re-election because of term limits.
Four state Senate seats also are on the runoff ballot.
