In Acadia Parish, John Stefanski won his bid to replace long-time state Representative Jack Montoucet.

Stefanski captured 54 percent of the vote, compared to fellow attorney Jay Suire's 46 percent.

The seat came open after Gov. John Bel Edwards appointed former State Rep. Jack Montoucet to serve as Secretary of Wildlife and Fisheries. Montoucet, was elected for three consecutive terms as a Democrat.

Both candidates are Crowley natives, lawyers and conservatives. During the campaign, they both said they support small government and funding for educational programs, and that they believe in community service.

Suire is a former radio broadcaster who often emcees local events.

Stefanski also volunteers in the community by coaching basketball for St. Michael's Elementary.
