State Senator Neil Riser of Columbia and Vance M. McAllister of Monroe, both Republicans, earned the right during the primary election last Saturday to face each other in a runoff election on November 16 to decide who
will represent the fifth congressional district in Congress for the next 13 months. The winner will fill out the unexpired term of Congressman Rodney Alexander, R-Ruston, who resigned in September to accept a position as Secretary of Louisiana Veterans Affairs after being appointed to the post by Gov. Bobby Jindal. Fourteen candidates were on the ballot last Saturday in hopes of making the runoff for the unexpired term, which ends in January 2015. The winner in the Nov. 16th general election will face voters again next fall in the regular congressional election for a full 2-year term in Congress.
