With 23 days to go before voters head to the polls, Acadiana's Morning News began the '5 Questions' series with the leading candidates for Senate, 3rd and 4th Congressional Districts and LA Supreme court. We'll ask each candidate the same questions to inform Acadiana voters.

Here are the questions:

1. What differentiates you from your challengers? What would you do differently than current U.S. Congressman Charles Boustany?

2. With the oil industry in turmoil in Louisiana, how will you work to restore jobs and the industry as a whole?

3. What does your first month in office look like? What is your first order of business?

4. As a state that has had its own issues with race, how do you think race will play a role in how you will execute the job when you're in office?

5. What is your biggest flaw?
