Lafayette Parish Mayor-President Joel Robideaux endorses John Kennedy for U.S. Senate.
Baton Rouge, LA — Lafayette Parish Mayor-President Joel Robideaux today endorsed John Kennedy in the race to become Louisiana’s next U.S. Senator.
“I am pleased to endorse John Kennedy to serve as our next United States Senator. I was honored to work with Treasurer Kennedy during my time in the Legislature. It is especially important that we elect a Senator who will be a strong advocate for our oil and gas industry. I consider him a friend and a respected colleague,” Robideaux said. “He is a hard-working and thoughtful leader. he will be an influential asset to President Trump in the Senate. As our U.S. Senator, he will make us proud for having elected the best leader to represent our values, our economy and our state.”
Kennedy said, “Mayor Robideaux knows that I will be a champion for the people of Acadiana, and I thank him for his endorsement. Too many people in Louisiana are hurting from the liberal policies that this administration has heaped on our oil and gas industry. My opponent wants to impose higher, job-killing taxes on this industry that will hurt its workers even more. I want to repeal needless regulations and provide more opportunities to put the people of Acadiana back to work so they can provide for their families.”
Robideaux is the latest to endorse Kennedy’s bid for the U.S. Senate. He joins a chorus of leaders who support the oil and gas industry and Acadiana, including 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.
