Attorney General Winner

The Associated Press projects Democrat James "Buddy" Caldwell as winner of the Louisiana attorney general's race on Saturday.

With 2,284 of 3,967 precincts reporting, Caldwell leads Republican Royal Alexander 66 percent to 34 percent, in Louisiana's final statewide election of 2007.

Incumbent Democrat Charles Foti failed to make it into the runoff. The early, unofficial returns showed Alexander with leads only in his home Caddo Parish and neighboring Bossier Parish.
