In Sunday's edition of The Daily Advertiser out of Lafayette, Congressman Charles Boustany received their endorsement for his candidacy in the Senate race for the seat being vacated by David Vitter. Boustany is running in a crowded field of 24 candidates and has been leading the pack in polling numbers for several weeks. In the endorsement, the paper highlighted Boustany as offering "right intention, dogged determination and sincere and informed leadership consistent with the needs of Louisiana and the nation."
The Daily Advertiser also highlighted Boustany's leadership on issues directly affecting the citizens of Louisiana, chief among them, the oil and gas industry. Additionally, his lead on coastal restoration, international trade, American security and international affairs were among the issues that were most important in their endorsement.
