Another Red-To-Blue

Despite the best Republican efforts to tie Democratic State Representative Don Cazayoux to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the voters of Louisiana's 6th Congressional District saw through the spin yesterday. Cazayoux defeated former Republican State Representative Woody Jenkins 49%-46% in a special election runoff to replace outgoing Republican Representative Richard Baker who resigned to work as a lobbyist.

Representative Baker is the new President and CEO of Managed Funds Association, a new industry lobby group representing hedge funds, or as their presser states, the "global alternative investment industry."
