AVOYELLES PARISH, La. (KALB) - Avoyelles Parish Sheriff Doug Anderson has been endorsed by John Johnson, who finished third in the Oct. 12 election for parish sheriff against Anderson and his runoff opponent David Dauzat.

Johnson only achieved 21 percent of the vote during that election, while Anderson and Dauzat received 34 percent and 45 percent respectively.
Johnson, who is also the elected police chief of Mansura, said he had intended to focus on that position and not support either candidate in the runoff.
However, in a Facebook post, Johnson cited a verbal attack on his daughter by a Dauzat supporter. So, he's now asking his supporters to support Doug Anderson.
