Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon is retaining his elected post, according to Insurance Journal.

Donelon, a Republican from Metairie, was re-elected on Oct. 22. He defeated Democratic opponent Donald Hodge, who criticized Donelon for receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from insurance companies.

A former lawmaker, Donelon said he’s approached the insurance regulatory post fairly, increasing competition to the state and stabilizing a market ravaged by four hurricanes since 2005.

Donelon has been insurance commissioner of Louisiana since 2006.
