|Morris turns out Little in District 14 race|
Political newcomer Jay Morris unseated Rep. Sam Little Saturday in the House District 14 run-off.
Morris hauled in 59.1 percent of the vote, according to complete but unofficial returns from the Secretary of State's office.
Morris, a Republican from Monroe, garnered 5,005 votes to 3,463 votes, or 40.9 percent, for Little.
"I am honored and humbled that a majority of the voters in District 14 chose me to serve as their state representative," Morris said. "I can assure them that I will not let them down."
"It was a hard-fought campaign, but it was worth it," he said.
Little, a Republican from Bastrop, was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 2007.
His bid to secure a second term in the House was an uphill battle from the start. During a special legislative session on redistricting earlier this year much of Little's base of support in Morehouse Parish was removed from District 14.
In exchange, District 14 picked up precincts in Ouachita Parish, including much of the north side of Monroe as well as a slither of western Ouachita Parish north of West Monroe. District 14 also includes the Sterlington area and much of the Swartz area in eastern Ouachita Parish.
Before redistricting, much of the north side of Monroe and parts of western Ouachita Parish were in District 16. District 16 was redrawn to become a majority-minority district, stretching from the Lamy Lane area in north Monroe to the Lakeshore community and northward through Morehouse Parish to include the incorporate areas of Bastrop.
