Cao defeats Jefferson

Ahn “Joseph” Cao will represent the 2nd District of Lousiana in the new Congressional term after defeating William Jefferson. Cao, an immigration attorney, is a newcomer to politics and will be the first person of Vietnamese descent to become a representative in Congress. His opponent William Jefferson was plagued by allegations of corruption throughout his campaign and is currently facing federal indictments related to illegal funds received from Nigerian business interests. Jefferson became notorious in Louisiana after the FBI found $90,000 in cash allegedly received as bribes in his freezer.

Though Louisiana is often mocked as a rural backwater by liberals, the state has now elected the first Indian American governor and the first Vietnamese American Congressman. Both are Republicans. Way to go, Lousiana!

BTW: This 2nd district had a 66% Democrat registration.

I agree, but apparently 2nd district Dems didn't agree as he won the primary in a crowded field of fellow travelers. So it had to be left to Repubs to get rid of him.

Have you seen how they do primaries in Louisiana? I am flat surprised that ANYBODY gets elected or not.

But the power of incumbency in the primary is strong so I am not real surprised on that part. He would have just been a distraction somewhere down the pike in the next two years anyway.

I also saw that Kilroy grabbed a house seat from the Repubs in Ohio. So it balanced.

In an odd turn of the media. The Cao story was on the top section of CNN and the Kilroy story was on the top section of Fox. I am starting to get concerned.

I'm still trying to figure out how Olbermann ended up on Fox.
