The political race for the newly redrawn 3rd congressional is starting to heat up.
The district which covers almost all of Southwest Louisiana has two candiadates, U.S. Representative Charles Boustany of Lafayette and U.S. Representative Jeff Landry of New Iberia.
According to a new poll, Boustany holds a very commanding lead of 61 percent over landry's 23 percent.
However Landry says, you can't always count on the polls.
Boustany represents Louisiana's 7th Congressional District.
Landry represents the 3rd but Boustany's distrct will be elminated after the state lost one of its seven house districts.
