Term limits will provide
Republicans with the opportunity of a lifetime.
Never in the history of Louisiana politics has there been so many
open seats in the state legislature. Because of term limits, 50
of the 105 seats in the State House will be open in 2007. This dynamic
clearly has the Democrats on defense.
50 SEATS in the House
of Representatives will be open.
35 of the 50 seats are held by Democratic incumbents. 20 of open
Democrat House seats are in districts where President Bush won majorities.
David Vitter won majorities in 13 of these 20 seats and ran strong
in the remaining seven districts, which are concentrated in the
7th Congressional District.
