On Nov. 4, Democratic incumbent Congressman Cedric Richmond won by a landslide. He got nearly 70 percent of the vote in District 2 -- Louisiana's only majority black district.
Dr. William Arp, a political scientist at Southern University, had predicted that when Ann Marie Awad spoke with him before the election.
Arp calls District 2, which encompasses most of New Orleans and north Baton Rouge, a "packed" district -- packed with minority voters. And when Awad visited Arp again he said, that's a bad thing.
