On Monday, November 2, 2015, appearing before the Baton Rouge Press Club, Attorney General candidate Geraldine Broussard Baloney, a Democrat, who finished 3rd in the primary with 187,575 votes (or 17.62% of all votes cast) formally endorses Republican Jeff Landry for the runoff election of November 21, 2015. Landry finished second in the race with 347,605 (32.65%) and faces incumbent Buddy Caldwell, whom Baloney criticized heavily in her presentation to the Press Club and in an interview afterward, in that runoff election.

whistleblower situation with how Caldwell handled it
