Louisiana secretary of state race turns sour by Election Day
BATON ROUGE (AP) - Republican candidates in the Louisiana secretary of state's race are ramping up attacks against their opponents heading into Election Day.
Interim Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin says Rep. Rick Edmonds is misrepresenting Ardoin's positions. Edmonds has slammed Ardoin as mishandling work to replace voting machines. Former Sen. A.G. Crowe is hitting Ardoin on the voting machine problems and Rep. Julie Stokes for supporting taxes.
Also in the race is Republican Turkey Creek Mayor Heather Cloud; Democrat Renee Fontenot Free, who worked for two prior secretaries of state; and Democratic lawyer Gwen Collins-Greenup.
The contest was certain to head into a December runoff.
Meanwhile, Louisiana's six incumbent U.S. House members hoped to avoid such a scenario and simply win outright.
