BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The race for District Judge of the 19th Judicial District Court- Division G concluded in a runoff Tuesday night.

The candidates who had their eye on the seat are Dele Adebamiji, Gail Horne Ray, Adam Kwentua, and “Steve” Myers.

Officials show the candidate with the most votes as “Steve” Myers at 44.84 percent.

But as this number falls short of the necessary 50 percent to declare a winner, the race is a runoff.
