Boustany, R-Lafayette, and Landry, R-New Iberia, were forced in a runoff election after neither incumbent earned more than 50 percent of the vote during the Nov. 6 primary election. With 54 percent of the precincts reporting, Boustany had garnered 58 percent of the votes reporting, or 32,128 – enough to call the race in his favor. Landry, at that time, had 42 percent of the vote, or 23,029 votes. …

The race has attracted widespread media attention as pundits speculate about the future of the Republican Party after President Barack Obama’s re-election and Tea Party losses across the country. Boustany is an establishment favorite and ally of House Speaker John Boehner, while Landry is a Tea Party freshman who rode a wave of conservative resurgence into the House.
