BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has some new competition in the 2015 election.

Former Republican Congressman Jeff Landry announced Monday he will be running for the seat.

Landry is a lawyer and businessman from New Iberia and was a Tea Party favorite after serving in the US House for one term.

When he was forced into the same district as Rep. Charles Boustany in 2012, Landry lost his re-election bid.
