Candidate list growing for open 6th District seat

Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Candidates are lining up to run for the state's only vacant congressional seat on the ballot this fall, representing the Baton Rouge-based 6th District.

A half dozen people have filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission declaring their candidacy, while still others say they plan to run.

The seat is being vacated by U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is hoping to unseat U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in the November election.

Among those who have filed their 6th District paperwork are four Republicans from Baton Rouge: Bob Bell, a retired Navy captain; state Sen. Dan Claitor; software company owner Paul Dietzel; and tax attorney Cassie Felder.

Two Democrats have registered: real estate broker Richard Lieberman, from LaPlace, and Quentin Anthony Anderson, campaign manager for Capital Area United Way from Baton Rouge.
