Louisiana: Treasurer Special.

Recap: 14 Oct 2017 Louisiana Special Election for state Treasurer to go to 18 November 2017 runoff
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Louisiana Special non partisan Election for state Treasurer. This vacancy was caused by the resignation of Treasurer John N. Kennedy (Republican) who ran for and won the Senate Class 3 seat in November 2016 and resigned effective 3 January 2017.

Since no candidate received a majority of the vote in the Saturday 14 October 2017 open primary, the top two candidates, Derrick Edwards (Democratic) 31% and former state Representative John M. Schroder, Sr. (Republican) 24%, proceed to the Saturday 18 November 2017 Open General (runoff).
