On Tuesday voters will elect new congressional representatives in four coastal districts, and in Plaquemines Parish they’ll elect a new parish president.

WWNO’s Tegan Wendland talked with Jeremy Alford, political reporter and editor of LaPolitics Weekly, about the implications the races could have for the coast.

Support for the Coastal Desk comes from the Walton Family Foundation, the Greater New Orleans Foundation and the Foundation for Louisiana.
