NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Five incumbent Louisiana representatives face no well-known opposition in Tuesday’s election, but there's a question as to who will represent a heavily Republican district where Rep. Ralph Abraham is stepping down from his northeast Louisiana-based district. Nine people are running to fill the open seat. Voters also are deciding on seven proposed amendments, including a measure to make sure nothing in the Louisiana Constitution is construed as granting women the right to abortion.
