Release: House Majority Whip Scalise and Congressman Abraham Endorse Kennedy for U.S. Senate
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.
