BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Voters decided several statewide races and a slew of local ones on Saturday. However, some races went down to the final vote.
Gov. Bobby Jindal easily won re-election, despite facing nine opponents. He was projected as the winner shortly after the polls closed.
"We have given our all; we will continue to give our all, right up to the day we leave office," Jindal said. "That, you can count on. We will give it 100 percent every single moment."
In two close statewide races, the incumbents edged out their challengers.
First, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne narrowly beat challenger Billy Nungesser. In an even closer race, Secretary of State Tom Schedler won over Jim Tucker.
Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain and Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon were also re-elected to statewide positions.
East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux won re-election and Sheriff Mike Cazes in West Baton Rouge Parish was well on his way to retaining his office.
Jason Ard was elected the next sheriff of Livingston Parish. He was chief deputy under retired longtime Sheriff Willie Graves.
Mike Grimmer, the president of Livingston Parish, failed to win outright in this primary. He will face challenger Layton Ricks in a runoff.
