The Democrat who finished third in the Third Congressional District primary race has endorsed one of his Republican opponents. Ron Richard announced his support of Dr. Charles Boustany earlier today. Richard, a Lake Charles lawyer, finished with 20% of the vote in Tuesday's primary, trailing incumbents Boustany and Jeff Landry. Boustany, who currently represents the soon-to-be-extinct Seventh Congressional District, and Landry, who represents the old Third Congressional District, will face each other in a run-off on December 8.
