Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Less than a month after citizens went to the polls, Tom Schedler has been once again sworn in as Secretary of State.
Schedler defeated GOP House Speaker Jim Tucker last month.
Now, he'll finish the unexpired term of former Secretary of State Jay Dardenne, and the next four-year term starts in January.
Schedler won last month's election by fewer than 8,500 votes to continue his time in office.
