Statewide Analysis

Click here for state and local election results in Louisiana.

Presidential:
Donald Trump won Louisiana's eight electoral votes.  Louisiana remains a solid red state and gave 58.1% of its vote to Trump in 2016.

Senate:
Louisiana State Treasurer John Kennedy (R) and Louisiana Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell (D) advanced to the December 10th run-off.

House:
Louisiana will see two new members added to their U.S. House delegation when the December 10th run-off decides the winner in the Louisiana 3rd and Louisiana 4th districts.  Both these seats were open when the incumbents, Representatives Boustany and Fleming, decided to run for the U.S. Senate in 2016.

Other Notable Election Results:
A ballot question that failed in Louisiana would have prevented corporations from deducting federal income taxes paid in computing the state corporate tax liability in Louisiana.  This measure is one of the many mechanisms being considered in Louisiana to overcome recent revenue troubles and budget deficits.  With the failure of this question the Louisiana state government will be sent back to find new methods to raise funds or reduce state expenses. Neither state house chamber had any seats up for election this year in Louisiana.
