Louisiana lawmaker shuffle: Elections fill seats, open more
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The fall elections have reshuffled seats in the Louisiana Legislature.
After the November and December elections, the Senate has one new member, the House has two new members and the House has another round of new vacancies. Abbeville Republican Bob Hensgens won a special election to move from the House to the Senate.
In the House, Mary DuBuisson, a Slidell Republican, won Saturday's election to fill the remaining term of Republican Greg Cromer, who resigned after winning election as Slidell's mayor. Elected to the House in November was Stuart Moss, a Republican who will fill the rest of the term of Mike Danahay, a Democrat elected mayor of Sulphur.
Seven more House seats are open after lawmakers were elected to jobs elsewhere. They'll be filled in February and March elections.
