John Kennedy's Blog
Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of John Kennedy, the leading conservative in Louisiana’s race for U.S. Senate. A runoff election will take place on December 10th, to fill a seat that is currently held by retiring Republican, David Vitter.
“After the historic conservative victories on election day, conservatives should focus on the election of John Kennedy to the Senate from Louisiana,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “He will be an important additional Republican vote for reduced taxes, Supreme Court openings, and rebuilding our military. I urge all conservatives in Louisiana to vote for John Kennedy on December 10.”
Treasurer Kennedy responded to ACU’s endorsement by saying, “I thank the American Conservative Union for their endorsement. They know that when I’m elected, I’ll always defend our Constitution and serve as a strong conservative voice in the Senate. We have all the momentum in this race, and it’s important that conservatives remain active until the runoff so we can close this election out with a win.”
Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the nation’s original conservative organization. For more than fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. As one of America's premier conservative voices, ACU promotes a conservative vision on issues before Congress, the Executive Branch, State Legislatures, the media, political candidates, and the public.
BATON ROUGE, La. – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and Fifth District Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., today endorsed John Kennedy in his bid for the U.S. Senate.
“John Kennedy has a proven record of fighting for hard-working Louisiana families as a watchdog for taxpayers,” said Scalise. “He will be a strong, conservative voice for our state in the U.S. Senate and will work to get our country back on track.”
Scalise is the third-highest ranking Republican in Congress and the U.S. Representative for Louisiana’s First Congressional District.
“John Kennedy is exactly what Washington needs: a straight-shooter who tells it like it is and always fights for what’s best for Louisiana. The Senate needs more folks who use good common sense, and we can count on John to do just that as we work together to end wasteful spending and rein in this crippling national debt,” said Dr. Abraham, the Congressman for Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District.
Scalise and Dr. Abraham are the latest Louisiana leaders to throw their support behind Kennedy. Sen. David Vitter, Sen. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, Rep. John Fleming, Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser and Rep. Charles Boustany earlier endorsed Kennedy.
“I’m proud to have Congressmen Scalise and Abraham’s endorsements, and I look forward to working with them. Conservatives in every corner of Louisiana are uniting behind my campaign because they know I can bring about the kind of conservative change Washington desperately needs so that we can get our nation going back in the right direction,” said Kennedy.

"I have great respect for the work John Kennedy has done as Treasurer," said Durel. "His support and guidance have been invaluable to the people of Lafayette and the growth of our city. He will make Louisiana proud as our Senator."
"Mayor-President Durel and I enjoyed a great working relationship during his time in office," said Kennedy. "I'll be turning to him to help turn out the vote in Acadiana. As your Senator, I'll make Louisiana taxpayers my top priority."
