More than 120 Elected Officials Endorse John Kennedy for U.S. Senate

Governors, Parish Presidents, and Mayors Unite Across the State

October 21, 2016 - Baton Rouge. LA - Elected officials from around the state announced their support today of John Kennedy in his race for U.S. Senate. More than 120 leaders from around the state joined together to endorse Kennedy including Governors, Parish Presidents, Mayors, and folks from every level of government.

“It’s an honor to have so many leaders from all parties and every corner of the state join our team,” said Kennedy. “Working together, we will be successful in bringing common sense solutions to the problems our country and state face.”

"I've known John Kennedy for more than 20 years, and he worked in my administration as Secretary of the Department of Revenue for a good portion of it," said Governor Mike Foster. "During that time, we worked together to ensure the fiscal strength of Louisiana. We left the state a lot of money in rainy day funds and we cut the debt significantly. I'm proud to endorse John in his campaign for the U.S. Senate. I know he will continue to be a voice for fiscal sanity in Washington, D.C., which our country desperately needs. He's got my vote."

“As Treasurer, John Kennedy has been attentive to the needs of the people of North Louisiana,” said Parish President Nowlin. “I am confident that he will be a leader for all of Louisiana. That’s why I’m proud to endorse John for U.S. Senate.”

“Our hard-working families deserve the kind of leadership that only John Kennedy is able to provide,” said Gov. Buddy Roemer.  “As a Washington outsider, John is not part of the ineffective political class that has failed us for so many years.”

“We need someone in Washington, D.C. who isn’t afraid to take on the big fights,” said St. Tammany Parish President Pat Brister. “We’ve worked together for years fighting to protect the interests of taxpayers, and I’m excited to know our next U.S. Senator will be from right here in St. Tammany. He is the obvious choice for our parish and me.”

"John Kennedy is a fierce advocate for Louisiana taxpayers, and he has an impressive record of fighting for greater transparency and against government waste," said Washington Parish President Ned Thomas. "That is why I am joining with other Washington Parish officials in support of his campaign."
