State Senator Troy Carter, NC-TAL PAC’s first endorsement in the 2021-2022 election cycle, came in first among 15 contenders in a special election on March 24 to represent Louisiana’s 2nd congressional district. Former Congressman Cedric Richmond, a former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus and now a senior advisor to President Biden, previously held the seat. Senator Carter received 36% of the vote, followed by State Senator Karen Carter Peterson, with 23%. Since no candidate exceeded the required 50% mark, a runoff will be between Carter and Peterson on April 24. NC-TAL PAC had held a virtual fundraiser for Senator Carter on February 25.
