Johnston was very narrowly elected in an at-large campaign to the Louisiana State House of Representatives in 1964, along with two Republicans, Morley A. Hudson and Taylor W. O'Hearn, and two other Democrats from Caddo Parish, Algie Brown (1910-2004) and Frank Fulco, Sr.
Johnston defeated Duke in the jungle primary, 53-44 percent.
Johnston retired after his fourth term ended in 1997; he was succeeded by his preferred candidate, fellow Democrat Mary Landrieu, daughter of the Carter HUD Secretary and former New Orleans Mayor Moon Landrieu.
