House Runoff Mar. 28
Metro Councilman Buddy Amoroso, the conservative leader on the Metro Council, faced a surprisely strong challenge from former Councilman Darrell Ourso in the Feb. 21 primary in House District 66. Now Amoroso and Ourso are preparing for the March 28 runoff election.
All 105 House and 39 Senate seats will be up for election this fall, but this particular race is a special election to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Rep. Hunter Greene, who resigned to become Juvenile Court judge. The winner will serve only until the end of the year and will have to run for a full term this fall.
Amoroso is supported by the Republican Party, the Louisiana Association of Business & Industry, ABC, and NRA. Ourso is supported by the Baton Rouge Police Union.
