CQ: Boustany's seat no longer "Safe Republican"

CQ Politics | Dems’ Craving for Upset of Boustany Prompts New Rating in Louisiana House Race
The recent entry of a politically experienced challenger, Democratic state Sen. Don Cravins Jr., has created the possibility of an unexpectedly competitive race this fall for two-term Louisiana Republican Rep. Charles Boustany Jr.

This development — and the announcement Friday by national Democratic officials that they have listed Cravins as one of their top challenger candidates this year — has prompted CQ Politics to change its rating on the race in southwestern Louisiana’s 7th District to Republican Favored, from the former category of Safe Republican.
