A Terrebonne Parish judge dismissed the case of a local candidate for state representative who sought to be listed as both a Democrat and Republican on the ballot this fall. Houma attorney Damon Baldone is seeking the House District 52 seat, which covers Bayou Cane, Gray, part of Houma and the Lafourche side of Bayou Blue.
Judge David W. Arceneaux decided Friday that Baldone’s rights were not violated by the Terrebonne Parish registrar of voters’ decision to refuse listing him in both parties. Instead, the registrar listed him as “other.”
Baldone, formerly a longtime Democrat, will now be listed as “other” on the Oct. 24 ballot.
