Announces Other Statewide Endorsements for 2019 Primary Election
LAFAYETTE, LA (September 26th, 2019) - Today, the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association Political Action Committee (LOGPAC) endorsed Ralph Abraham in the race for governor and announced its support of other statewide candidates and elected officials seeking office this year.
“The Louisiana Oil and Gas Political Action Committee is pleased to endorse Congressman Ralph Abraham in the race for governor,” said Gifford Briggs, Executive Director of LOGPAC. “From lawsuits, to taxes and regulations, the energy industry is facing serious challenges that must be immediately addressed to bring jobs, investments and opportunities back to Louisiana. Far too many of our workers and families have been hurting for far too long. We believe Congressman Abraham understands these challenges and will provide the strong leadership that’s necessary to revitalize Louisiana’s energy industry.”
At an election rally in Lafayette today, LOGPAC also endorsed the following candidates/elected officials:
Lieutenant Governor: Billy Nungesser
Secretary of State: Kyle Ardoin
Attorney General: Jeff Landry
Treasurer: John M. Schroder
Supreme Court: Judge Will Crain
“Louisiana oil and gas fuels our economy and our environment,” Briggs said. “Our industry supports over 260,000 jobs and contributes more than $2 billion in taxes, all while playing a leading role in providing much needed funds for restoration and hurricane protection projects to strengthen our coast. But we are facing serious challenges that are detrimental to current and future growth—and it is more important than ever that citizens across the state engage in the election process and demand policies that will bring our jobs and families back to Louisiana. We are proud to endorse these candidates who will fight for a robust oil and gas industry and a better Louisiana for generations to come.”
