in

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Republicans held on to two congressional seats in Louisiana on Saturday in runoff elections that marked the end of an improbable comeback try by former Democratic Gov. Edwin Edwards, who sought to overcome the stigma of having spent more than eight years in prison in a conservative, GOP-leaning district.
