Painter drops out of race, Wiley re-elected

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley will not face any opponents in the fall election after two opponents in the race withdrew their names from the ballot.

Former ATC Commissioner Murphy Painter withdrew his name Monday morning. The other candidate, Louis Boudreaux, also notified state officials he has decided not to run.

The sheriff's race will no longer appear on the ballot since Wiley does not face opposition.
