GOP runoff won by Scalise

Steve Scalise won last night in the GOP runoff for the District 1 congressional elections, the seat left vacant by Bobby Jindal when he peaced out to Baton Rouge. This pretty much means that Scalise will be the next representative for District 1, which has been a Republican-held seat since 1977.

It's exciting this area again has someone to rally around now, although I don't think Scalise quite has or will ever have the cult following that Bobby had as the District 1 rep.

But one thing is for certain: Mr. Scalise is clearly possessed by the devil and will wake up to find this TERRIFYING photo of himself on

Scalise has been eyeing this seat for a decade now, backing down to people that are better looking and more interesting than him (obviously, Bobby Jindal, and also David Vitter *irony implied*). But now he finally gets to go to Washington and kick it with the big boys, so I congratulate him.

Scalise beat out opponent Tim Burns, who received most of this support and votes from the conservatives in St. Tammany and Washington parishes.

Scalise will go up against Dr. Gilda Reed (Democrat), Skip Galan (Independent), and Tony Gentile (Independent American Party) in the general election set for May 3. [Times-Picayune]
