Attorney General Jeff Landry has been elected as the Governor of Louisiana. With Governor John Bel Edwards, the only Democratic governor in the South, limited to two terms, Republicans have successfully seized the opportunity to reclaim the governor’s mansion.

Louisiana’s unique open primary system allows a candidate to win outright if they secure a majority of the primary vote, the New York Times reported.

Landry did just that, capturing an impressive 52% of the vote and avoiding a runoff election. Had the race gone to a runoff, Landry could have faced off against another Republican or the leading Democrat, Shawn Wilson, a former state transportation secretary.

Earlier today, Landry wrote on his X (formerly Twitter) account, I would be humbled to have your vote today. Together, we can finally give Louisiana a government as good as its people.

Donald Trump Jr. also wrote earlier, “Calling all MAGA patriots in Louisiana – Get out and vote today for Jeff Landry for Governor- He’s the only pro-Trump America First conservative in the race. My father and I both endorsed him because we know that he will fight like hell for Louisiana!!!”

The Gateway Pundit previously reported in May that former Missouri Attorney General, now Senator Eric Schmitt, along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, filed a lawsuit (Missouri v. Biden) against the Biden Administration, including Biden himself, Anthony Fauci, the Department of Homeland Security, and nearly a dozen federal agencies and Secretaries, with yours truly, Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit as one of the plaintiffs.

Last month, the US SUPREME COURT ACCEPTED THE CASE.

A leaked DOJ Motion to Stay indicates that the DOJ is going to try and reverse the portion of the injunction left in place by the 5th Circuit.  That is, the DOJ is going to try and stop the order (injunction) stopping the White House, CDC, FBI, and Surgeon General from censoring speech and overturning the 5th Circuit.

However, this also gives Gateway Pundit, Missouri, Louisiana, and the other plaintiffs in the case the opportunity to argue the whole 5th Circuit order – to ask the Supreme Court to issue an injunction against ALL OF THE GOVERNMENT DEFENDANTS TO IMMEDIATELY STOP COLLUDING WITH BIG TECH TO CENSOR SPEECH.

This is a developing story, and we will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.
