A state judge signed an order Monday temporarily blocking ash from the incineration of a Texas Ebola victim's belongings to be disposed of at a southwest Louisiana site.

Treasurer John Kennedy says he called off phone updates with the state’s credit rating agencies because of questions about whether Louisiana ended its last budget year with a surplus or a deficit.

Georgia may actually need a runoff election, too, which is scheduled for Jan. 6, three days after Congress is sworn in.

A Louisiana waste disposal facility said Monday it would not accept the ash from the incineration of a Texas Ebola victim's belongings, at least not until state officials agree that doing so would pose no threat to the public.

Asked if the party would wholeheartedly support McAllister if he makes the runoff against Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo, a Democrat, Louisiana Republican Party Executive Director Jason Doré said it would be a “tough decision.”
