Louisiana runoff results

The GOP won two seats in Congress in Louisiana's runoff elections today. 

1) Joseph Cao knocked out Rep. William "Cold Cash" Jefferson to become the first person to represent New Orleans in Congress since 1891. 

2) Republican John Fleming won a seat in the 4th District by 356 votes.  There will probably be a recount.

Here's the CNN write-up of Jefferson's loss.
