Kissing Congressman Vance McAllister Loses House Race


Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA), the congressman caught kissing a staffer, did not advance to the runoff election in his Louisiana House race, according to The Hill.

Democratic candidate Jamie Mayo will run against Ralph Abraham or Zach Dasher, the two Republican candidates who have pulled the most votes in the race. Votes are still being counted in the race, so it’s not yet clear whether Abraham or Dasher will advance.

McAllister was running against eight challengers.
