LAFAYETTE, LA (FOX44) -- Qualifying for elections began around the state today. In Lafayette, one incumbent walked into the Clerk of Court’s Office with more than just his filing fee. He came prepared for a fight.
State Representative Rickey Hardy looked more like Rocky than an elected official seeking re-election. That’s because he put on his boxing gloves to show the public that he’s going to give it his all in the upcoming election.
Running against Hardy is Vincent Pierre. He hopes to unseat the unconventional Representative.
