FRANKLINTON, LA – Today, the Washington Republican Parish Executive Committee (RPEC) announced that they have voted to endorse Jeff Landry for Louisiana Attorney General.
In making the announcement - Washington RPEC Chairman Darryl Peterson said, “Many elections are on the ballot this October, but the race for Attorney General is among the most crucial. In today’s climate, both legal and economic, Louisiana needs an Attorney General who will clean up our state’s legal environment that is currently ranked second worst in the nation. Further, we need an Attorney General with a proven record of job creation taking a business approach to the office. Jeff’s years as a corporate attorney representing job creators and creating jobs on his own as a small business owner are exactly the credentials we need at this junction.”
In receiving the endorsement - Jeff Landry said, “I am humbled to have the support of the Washington RPEC. These elected leaders at the local level embody the principles of our Party. They - like many Republicans, Democrats, and Independents across the state - have grown tired of the status quo, incumbent office holders and are hungry for a change to principled governance that focuses on the issues facing our families and businesses every day. Our current legal environment in Louisiana has driven jobs and industry out of our state; and it’s time for an Attorney General who will take an approach that encourages economic growth and who will put Louisiana first. Louisiana is a good state; together, we can make it great.”
Landry has also been endorsed by the Republican Party of Louisiana, the pro-life Family Research Council Action, Gun Owners of America, Gator PAC, Congressman John Fleming, Congressman Steve Scalise, Colonel Rob Maness, the Louisiana Young Republican Federation, and the College Republicans at Louisiana State University.
