LAFAYETTE, La. — Today, Jeff Landry received the endorsement of U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) in his race for Governor of Louisiana. Watch Sen. Cassidy’s endorsement here.
“Today, I endorse Jeff Landry for Governor. There are good people in the race, and I am friends with most. But as I’ve traveled the state, Jeff has been the candidate connecting with the most people from all parts of the state,” said Dr. Cassidy.
“We’re both fighting to make flood insurance more affordable and to get resources to restore our coastline. He and I both strongly support Louisiana becoming the leader in the new energy economy, which will create thousands of new, high-paying jobs. And we both agree we must improve access to mental health services. These are the issues the next Governor must address. Jeff plans to,” continued Dr. Cassidy.
“This race is so important to the future of our State. I appreciate Senator Cassidy’s support, and I look forward to working with him to pursue commonsense solutions to grow our economy, lower the price of flood insurance, and improve access to mental health services for every Louisianan,” said Jeff Landry.
This endorsement is part of a growing list of supporters including President Donald Trump, Congressman Mike Johnson, Congressman Clay Higgins, former Congressman Ralph Abraham, businessman Eddie Rispone, businessman Boysie Bollinger, the Club for Growth, as well as numerous Republican Parish Executive Committees (RPEC), sheriffs, and District Attorneys across Louisiana.
