U.S. Senate

Incumbent Sen. Bill Cassidy (R) is favored to win a 2nd term. However, if he does not exceed 50%, he will first have to face the second place finisher in a December 5 runoff. This is because Louisiana does not have primaries prior to Election Day (except for president). All candidates from all parties appear on a single ballot November 3. 2022: Sen. John Kennedy (R, 1st term)

U.S. House

6 Congressional Districts: 5 Republicans | 1 Democrat

The state does not have primaries prior to Election Day (except for president). All candidates from all parties appear on a single ballot November 3. If no candidate gets a majority, the top two finishers advance to a runoff on December 5. The only place that seems likely is District 5, where Republican Ralph Abraham is retiring and a large field is looking to succeed him. Runoff or not, a Republican is expected to prevail in the district. The other five incumbents are expected to be reelected.
