Release: ST. Tammany GOP Endorses Kennedy in U.S. Senate Race

Baton Rouge, LA-- At its regular monthly meeting on Nov. 22, the Republican Parish Executive Committee (RPEC) of St. Tammany Parish voted to endorse State Treasurer John Kennedy in the race for United States Senate.
 The RPEC heard from most Republican candidates for the seat at its August meeting, and finding a number of well-qualified candidates declined to issue an endorsement. With the race narrowed to Kennedy and a lone Democrat, the RPEC revisited the issue last week and overwhelmingly voted to endorse Kennedy.
"Quite a few good Republicans offered themselves for service in this seat in the November primary, and the voters gave a strong nod to Treasurer Kennedy," said RPEC Chair Larry Frieman.  "Mr. Kennedy has a distinguished record of service to the people of Louisiana during his time in Baton Rouge, and we are fully confident in his dedication to the principles that reflect our party's values. We know he will serve us well in Washington."
The RPEC is a statutory body consisting of 19 members, with one from each Parish Council district and five At-Large.  The current members were elected last March.


The Hill: In Louisiana Senate race, John Kennedy is the only candidate conservatives can trust


Americans across the country and especially in my home state of Louisiana are still celebrating the results of an historic Election Day. Republicans maintained our majorities in the Senate and the House, and we will finally have an ally in the White House in Donald Trump who will help us get this country back on the right track.

But at home, conservatives still have one more race to win:  We have to elect Republican state Treasurer John Kennedy to the United States Senate. The differences between John and his liberal opponent, Foster Campbell, couldn’t be clearer, and only John can be counted on to be a consistent conservative voice for the people of Louisiana.

Release: John Kennedy Statement on Bourbon Street Shooting

Baton Rouge, LA — In the wake of another violent night in New Orleans, John Kennedy released the following statement. "The violence in New Orleans is out of control. Twenty-four people have been shot in New Orleans in the last three days including the ten shot on Bourbon Street early this morning. We need to take action today to empower our law enforcement officers, not undermine them. I’m grateful to the response from law enforcement officers who were on the scene last night to help prevent even more shootings. My prayers go out to the men and women of our law enforcement agencies who put themselves in harm’s way every day."
