Sen. Cassidy, multiple Louisiana house members keeps seat

Sen. Bill Cassidy

(The Center Square) – U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy has been reelected to a second term, easily winning outright in the first round against 14 challengers and avoiding a runoff.

Meanwhile, every Louisiana incumbent in the U.S. House of Representatives secured an early victory Tuesday night by cracking the 50 percent threshold needed to win in the first round, with one House race left to be decided in December.

As a Republican incumbent in a red state, Cassidy was heavily favored to win. The only question for his campaign in Tuesday’s nonpartisan open primary, in which every candidate competes on the same ballot regardless of party, was whether he would get more than 50 percent of the vote and avoid facing the second-place finisher next month.
