Release: Thibodaux Mayor Tommy Eschete Endorses Kennedy for U.S. Senate
BATON ROUGE, La. - Thibodaux Mayor Tommy Eschete today endorsed John Kennedy to become Louisiana’s next U.S. Senator.
Eschete praised Kennedy for his support of policies that will generate jobs and move Louisiana’s economy forward. Kennedy’s support for small business stands in stark contrast to his opponent, Foster Campbell, who has repeatedly called for higher, job-killing taxes on our state’s oil and gas industry.
“My conservative values fit John’s vision for a better state. He’ll support our economy in Louisiana and restore the integrity of our oil and gas industry, and that is why I’m supporting him,” Eschete said.
Kennedy said, “Mayor Eschete and I know the best way to create jobs is to provide opportunity, not raise taxes. Higher taxes and needless regulations that my opponent supports aren’t going to put our people back to work. The hardworking people of Louisiana’s oil and gas industry can always count on me to support them in Washington.”
Eschete joins a growing list of people who are supporting Kennedy. He’s recently received the support of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Sen. David Vitter, Sen. Bill Cassidy, Rep. Ralph Abraham, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, Rep. John Fleming, Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser and Rep. Charles Boustany.
