Louisiana's 3rd Congressional District is Southeastern Louisiana: it stretches from St. Bernard Parish and Plaquemines on the east, through the Bayou Country near Houma, to the sugar cane fields of New Iberia.
Now, LA-03 is Ground Zero for the BP Oil Spill. We've seen the impact of the oil on its fragile coastal marshlands; only time will tell the impact on the fishermen and the workers in the maritime, offshore drilling and oilfield construction industries.
Jeff Landry (R) is a candidate for the seat that is being vacated by Blue Dog Democrat Charlie Melancon.
