Lagasse will not challenge election

Mickey Lagasse will not challenge the Nov. 3 District 122 state House of Representatives race, which he lost to David Baria by 103 votes.

“My family and I have decided not to challenge the District 122 race,” Lagasse said Friday. “We believe that Karen Ruhr and the circuit clerk’s office did a fine job in handling the election. I want to thank them for all of their work during this process.”

Friday was the deadline to file an election challenge.
