1967 Louisiana gubernatorial election
|Elections in Louisiana|
The Louisiana gubernatorial election of 1967 was held on November 4. No runoff election was needed, and the Republicans did not field a candidate in the general election held on February 6, 1968. In the general election, there was a contest for state treasurer between the victorious Democrat, Mary Evelyn Parker, and her Republican challenger, Allison Kolb. The 1967 primary election resulted in the overwhelming re-nomination of John McKeithen to his second consecutive term as governor, the result of a constitutional amendment approved by voters in 1966, which allows Louisiana governors to serve two back-to-back terms.
