Gov. Bobby Jindal’s former coastal chief Garrett Graves was the top Republican finisher in the 6th Congressional District race on Tuesday. While he was celebrating at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Baton Rouge, State Sen. Dan Claitor, another Republican contender, was at a friend's house having gumbo.
Edwin Edwards, the 87-year-old former four-term Louisiana governor who spent more than eight years in federal prison, has earned a runoff spot against Republican Garret Graves in the state's 6th Congressional District.
Graves and Edwards will face each other on the Dec. 6 ballot.
