Pol­i­tics GOP’S KENNEDY WINS LA. SE­NATE RACE RUNOFF

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

ba­ton rouge, la. » Louisiana vot­ers Satur­day chose to send Repub­li­can state Trea­surer John Kennedy to the U.S. Se­nate, fill­ing the na­tion’s last Se­nate seat and giv­ing the GOP a 52-48 edge in the cham­ber when the new term be­gins in Jan­uary.

Kennedy had al­ways been the runoff elec­tion’s fron­trun­ner in a state that over­whelm­ingly sup­ported Don­ald Trump. He de­feated Demo­crat Foster Camp­bell, a state util­ity reg­u­la­tor whose chances were seen as such a long-shot that na­tional Demo­cratic or­ga­ni­za­tions of­fered lit­tle as­sis­tance to Camp­bell’s cam­paign.
