Release: Terrebonne Parish President Michel Claudet and State Representative Dee Richard Endorse John Kennedy for U.S. Senate

Baton Rouge, LA--John Kennedy today received endorsements from former Terrebonne Parish President Michel Claudet and State Representative Dee Richard in his bid for the U.S. Senate.

"John Kennedy is the clear choice for the United States Senate," said Claudet. "John is someone who isn't afraid to stand up for what's right, say what needs to be said, and do what needs to be done. He's the type of leader we need representing hardworking Louisiana families in Congress."

“People in the bayou like John because he isn’t scared to fight for Louisiana taxpayers,” said Richard. “I’m proud to join John’s team because we need more independent thinkers in Congress who tell it like it is.”

Michel H. Claudet served as Parish President for Terrebonne Parish from 2008 to 2016. Jerome "Dee" Richard, is one of two Independent members of the Louisiana House of Representatives, serving since 2008.

“I’m thrilled to have the endorsement of Parish President Claudet and Representative Richard,” said Kennedy. "Michel's leadership following Hurricane Katrina was remarkable. Dee is an independent thinker who makes decisions based on the needs of his constituency. Both Michel and Dee understand like I do the value of a dollar, and the serious issues we're facing as a state and nation. Our best days are yet to come, but only if we change the path we are on. I'm ready to go to Washington and do just that.”

Baton Rouge, LA--Former Louisiana Governor Mike Foster today endorsed John Kennedy in his bid for the U.S. Senate. Governor Foster joins Governor Buddy Roemer as the second former Governor to endorse Kennedy in as many weeks.

"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 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."

Governor Foster served as the 53rd governor of Louisiana from January 1996 until January 2004.

"It was an honor to work with Governor Foster over the years to protect the interests of Louisiana taxpayers, and I’m proud to have his endorsement," said Kennedy. "As we campaign throughout the state, we can feel the momentum growing. Louisiana voters are tired of the tax and spend Congress, and they want to bring some Louisiana common sense to Washington, D.C.  I'm ready to do just that."

Kennedy continues to enjoy a sizable lead in the race for U.S. Senate, dominating the last five polls.
