BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The race for lieutenant governor went down to the wire, but in the end, Jay Dardenne got the bigger numbers to win his re-election bid.

His challenger, Billy Nungesser, hoped late results from the New Orleans area and along the coast would push him over the top, but it wasn't enough.

Dardenne got 53 percent of the vote to Nungesser's 47 percent.
