Roll Call: Kennedy Leads While Boustany, Fleming Trail in Louisiana Senate Race

State Treasurer John Kennedy Holds Big Lead Over Large Field

From Stephanie Akin, Roll Call reporter

Louisiana state Treasurer John N. Kennedy, a self-described "political misfit," holds a large lead in the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. David Vitter, according to a new poll, significantly outperforming two House members who gave up their seats to run.  

Thirty-two percent of respondents to the survey conducted by Southern Media & Opinion Research in late May said they would vote for Kennedy, a Republican, if the election were held then, compared to 10.1 percent for Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., and 5.2 percent for Rep. John Fleming, who are also Republicans.
