The final votes in the 6th District Congressional race will be cast Saturday, Dec. 6.
Former four-term governor and veteran of Congress Edwin Edwards is in a runoff with first-time candidate Garret Graves.
Graves is no stranger to politics though, having worked with former Congressman Billy Tauzin, Sen. David Vitter, and former Sen. John Breaux in Washington. And, until February Graves was Gov. Bobby Jindal’s coastal chief.
But none of that apparently prepared his voice for the long campaign season.
Graves was still a bit hoarse when WRKF’s Amy Jeffries reached him by phone Wednesday afternoon.
