Louisiana Democratic Party’s Sixth Congressional District Candidate Justin Dewitt Concedes Election

BATON ROUGE, LA – On Tuesday, the Louisiana Democratic Party’s endorsed candidate for Louisiana’s 6th Congressional District, Justin Dewitt, conceded the race to Congressman Garret Graves. Dewitt ran a close race keeping on Congressman Graves the entire election and holding him to a new standard.

“Justin has ran a race that we’re confident will change how people perceive politicians in Louisiana,” LDP Executive Director Stephen Handwerk said. “An openly gay, blue collar worker with no prior college experience took on and held accountable a deeply entrenched Republican Congressman. We fully expect to see that change the qualifications of candidates. The traditional mold of what makes a politician no longer needs to apply and we can’t wait.”
