The Louisiana Secretary of State’s web page has election returns for the state election of October 22 here. Scott Lewis, the Libertarian candidate for Governor, polled 1.22% in a race with ten candidates. Although that is not especially noteworthy, it is far better than the only other instance when the Libertarian Party ran a candidate for Governor. That other time was in 2007, when the party’s candidate only polled .20%.
In the October 22, 2011 election, the Reform Party candidate for Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner, Belinda Alexandrenko, polled 5.69% in a race against a Republican and a Democrat. The Secretary of State’s web page has her listed with “(R)” after her name, but on the ballot she was on as a Reform Party candidate.
