Libertarian in Louisiana election for governor

The state of Louisiana held a gubernatorial election on October 22, 2011. There were ten candidates on the ballot: Libertarian Scott Lewis, a Republican, four Democrats, and four independents.

Lewis received 12,517 votes (1.2%).

Ballot Access News notes that the result "is far better than the only other instance when the Libertarian Party ran a candidate for Governor. That other time was in 2007, when the party’s candidate only polled .20%." View the election results.
