Louisiana Attorney General election, 2015
|Elections in Louisiana|
The 2015 Louisiana Attorney General election will take place on October 24, 2015 to elect the Attorney General of the state of Louisiana, with a runoff election, if necessary, to be held later on. Incumbent Buddy Caldwell, a former Democrat who joined the Republican Party in February 2011, may run for re-election to a third term in office.
Under Louisiana's jungle primary system, all candidates will appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. If no candidate receives 50 percent plus one vote during the primary election, a runoff election will be held on November 21, 2015 between the top two candidates in the primary. California, Louisiana and Washington are the only states that have a jungle primary system.
