McAllister defeats Riser for seat in Louisiana runoff special election Nov 18, 2013

Louisiana

By Jennifer Springer

Baton Rouge, Louisiana: Political newcomer Vance McAllister (R) defeated two-term state Senator Neil Riser (R) in the runoff special election for the 5th District seat on November 16, 2013.[1][2]

The special election was held to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Rep. Rodney Alexander (R).[3] Gov. Bobby Jindal announced on August 7, 2013, that Alexander will take over as the next Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs.[3] Alexander's resignation was effective on September 26, 2013.[3]

McAllister, who ran as a political outsider, largely self-funded his campaign.[4] He also had the backing of the popular Duck Dynasty television series Robertson family.[5]

One issue that distinguished the two Republican candidates was the Affordable Care Act. While both opposed overhauling the law, Riser expressed wanting only to repeal, while McAllister had said Congress should work on improvements to the law.[4]

Louisiana's 5th Congressional District is a safe Republican district.[6] The 5th Congressional District is the largest geographically in the state, encompassing 22 parishes in the northeast and central parts of the state.[7]

McAllister will face re-election for a full term in 2014.
