Surprise Win in Louisiana Special Election

Vance McAllister (R) won a special election in Louisiana's 5th District, "stunning the heir apparent in the contest to become the next member of Congress," Roll Call reports.

McAllister, a self-funding newcomer, defeated Neil Riser (R) who "had long been considered a shoo-in to win the special election to replace Rep. Rodney Alexander, who resigned over the summer to take a post in Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration."
