Release: Governor Mike Foster Endorses John Kennedy fo U.S. Senate
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.
