Via The Hill:
Republican John Kennedy is projected to win the Louisiana Senate runoff election, giving the GOP a 52-seat majority in the upper chamber.
Kennedy, Louisiana’s state treasurer, defeated Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell (D) on Saturday in the race to replace retiring Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), according to The Associated Press.
Kennedy, who had previously run unsuccessfully for Senate twice, ran well ahead of Campbell in polling throughout the race. President-elect Donald Trump won Louisiana by 20 points, and 60 percent of the state’s electorate voted for one of the Republican Senate candidates in the November jungle primary.
