Black Stone put another notch in its political belt with a big win for incumbent State Legislator Steve Carter of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Steve faced a hard charge challenge from the right and a traditional Democratic challenge from the left. We provided a full range of services for Steve in his most recent competitive election and logged our ‘First Big Win in the Deep South’. Black Stone is currently active in political campaigns in Texas, Louisiana and New York.
Black Stone provided a full range of services to the Carter campaign, including a comprehensive and targeted direct mail campaign. To view some of the work Black Stone provided please visit: BlackStoneTexas.com
Carter, who is a candidate for Speaker of the Louisiana House, has spent the last four years as the chairman for the House Education Committee and has taken the lead on controversial educational issues, including Common Core, public school overhauls like limiting teacher tenure protections, expanding charter schools and programs, and allowing public dollars to be used for private tuition vouchers. This past Saturday’s win sends Carter back to continue doing good work while tackling the tough issues.
Representative Steve Carter said, “Greg, Joe and the entire Black Stone team are a group of experienced professionals. They did an unbelievable job for my reelection campaign. Everyone loved the photography, mail and graphic design work they did for us. I would highly recommend Black Stone to anyone serious about running for political office.”
In the end, the Republican won with 55 percent of the vote. He defeated Patty Merrick, a Democrat who had 26 percent of the vote, and Robert Cade Cipriano, a Republican who won 19 percent. This victory ensures that Carter, who is also an active candidate for Speaker of the Louisiana House, will not have to face an expensive challenge in a runoff election.
