There will be a November runoff between incumbent Democrat John Bel Edwards and upstart Republican challenger businessman Eddie Rispone.
Edwards was not able to reach the threshold to avoid a runoff Saturday night.
Republican Congressman Ralph Abraham, who was also challenging Edwards, conceded after placing third and says he will support Rispone in the runoff.
The runoff is scheduled for November 16. Early voting will be between Nov. 2-9, excluding Sunday Nov. 3.
