Who is Bodi White?
Mack A. "Bodi" White, Jr. is an incoming Republican member of the Louisiana State Senate from Central City in East Baton Rouge Parish in south Louisiana. His District 6 includes parts of East Baton Rouge, Livingston, St. Helena, and Tangipahoa parishes.
White won the Senate seat in the nonpartisan blanket primary held on October 22, 2011, by having narrowly defeated fellow Republican Mike Mannino, 12,886 votes to 12,047. The incumbent senator, Republican Julie Quinn of Jefferson Parish, did not seek reelection.
Under redistricting, Senate District 6 has a different configuration reaching from Baton Rouge to the Florida Parishes. White describes the district as "sprawling, almost 100 miles long. It is an area of tremendous growth. The I-10 and I-12 corridors have added five new representative districts and 1-1/2 new Senate seats as a result of the census. It's also where we expect the growth to be over the next ten years." White describes the Senate district as "conservative" with "working people [who] believe in family values, and [oppose] tax increases.”
