11:19PM: The last three precincts are in. The final result is Cazayoux 49.20%, Jenkins 46.27%. What a ride!
10:55PM (David): Wow. What a rollercoaster. The lesson here, obviously, is that if you don't know exactly which precincts have reported, projecting things out in a tight race is a very inexact game. Jeffmd seemed to have a good read on those remaining EBR precincts, but ultimately, what matters most is that Don Cazayoux pulled off an extremely impressive win here. Nice work indeed!
10:50PM: CAZAYOUX WINS!! 10:48PM: CAZAYOUX TAKES THE LEAD!
10:47PM: I guess the Louisiana SoS has gone for a smoke break. Hang in there.
10:31PM: The final Livingston precinct is now in. It's nothing but EBR from now on in. Hang on...
10:27PM: Damn, Jenkins has pulled ahead in EBR again.
10:24PM (David): The envelope is looking better. Please don't get too excited, but if all of the outstanding precincts perform the same way those already counted have (on a parish-by-parish basis), then Cazayoux would come away with a very narrow win. Given how drastically EBR has shifted tonight, I wouldn't bank on anything, though.
10:22PM: EBR is continuing to come in for Cazayoux. Come on, Han old buddy. Don't let me down!
10:15PM: Cazayoux is pulling ahead in EBR now... it's looking much closer.
10:06PM (David): My back-of-the-envelope spreadsheet suggests that Cazayoux would have to run 17 points ahead of where he's been all night in the outstanding vote to be able to come back for the narrowest of wins. Not good.
10:01PM: This is not looking great -- Cazayoux is getting smacked in East Baton Rouge so far.
9:52PM: Keep in mind that with 16 of 21 precincts reporting in West Baton Rouge, Cazayoux is up big -- 1771 to 741.
9:49PM: Woody is starting this with a big lead (55%-41%) based in part on the strong returns from the very Republican Livingston Parish. We have a ways to go yet.
9:37PM: As expected, Livingston is coming in strongly for Jenkins. Feliciana looks tight.
9:18PM Eastern: The first results are trickling in -- likely absentees. 51% Woody, 46% Cazayoux.
Polls are now closed in Louisiana. We'll be tracking the results as them come in above.
