      or Louisiana, usually they are for primaries where the winner doesn't get 50% or more.  requiring that a candidate in a general get more than 50% is a good thing. if you have 3 way race the third place finisher is eliminated and they have a revote in a months time. in this case. the independent candidate would be out and it would be a lepage-michuad matchup, which given lepages antics would be a walkover for Michuad.
