Fleming Re-Elected In US House 4th District

Republican John Fleming on Tuesday won a fourth term in the U.S. House representing northwest Louisiana's 4th District.

Fleming, a doctor and businessman from Minden, bested two opponents to stay in office: Democrat Justin Ansley of Bossier and Libertarian Randall Lord of Shreveport.

Neither of Fleming's opponents mounted a significant fundraising or advertising effort to try to unseat the congressman in Tuesday's election.

The 4th District is largely rural, stretching from the Arkansas line to southwest Louisiana, including the Shreveport area.
