LA-SEN: Rob Maness campaign manager John Mathis told The Hayride that Maness will qualify tomorrow morning.

LA-03: Clay Higgins is in Cleveland for the GOP convention. We can assume he’ll qualify tomorrow as well.

LA-04: The only big name we’re waiting on is Mike Johnson. He’s still in state so I’m not sure what they’re waiting on.

Baton Rouge Mayor: “Smokie” Bourgeois, despite being outspent $43,000 to $4,800, nearly defeated John Delgado four years ago, so he decided to run against Delgado again. This time for Mayor of Baton Rouge.
