LAFAYETTE, LA - Today, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is officially endorsing Congressman Clay Higgins for re-election to the United States House of Representatives.

“Congressman Higgins has used his time in office to lower our taxes, protect our nation, and put America first,” said Jeff Landry. “He has worked together with President Trump to achieve positive results for Acadiana families, and I am confident he will continue to fight tirelessly for us.”

“From Abbeville to Crowley and Lake Charles to Morgan City - the people of Southwest Louisiana are hard-working, God-fearing, patriotic Americans just like Clay,” explained Landry. “We are fortunate to have Clay's experience, leadership, and passion as he represents us in Washington.”

“I join President Trump in support of Congressman Higgins” added the Attorney General. “I look forward to casting my ballot to keep Clay in Congress, and I encourage all my neighbors in the Third District to do the same.”


Conservative Review’s most recent rating of the Louisiana delegation does not look good for those in the Acadiana / Lake Charles / Southeast Louisiana region being “represented” by Congressman Charles Boustany.  In a comparison to the rest of the Louisiana delegation in both chambers, Boustany scored a resounding “F” on the graded scale from that organization.

His “Boustany Jr. At a Glance” profile describes the congressman in the following terms:

Unsurprisingly, he considers the most conservative members of the conference in the House – the more newly elected tea party aligned members – not to be conservative. "Look at payroll tax. Look at fiscal cliff. You can go on and on. There are a handful of members – the numbers sort of vary, it’s in the 20-30 range – that are enough to derail a Republican conservative agenda in the House."[3] He is also a strong critic of those conservatives that want to continue fighting for repeal and defunding of Obamacare. He supports the expansion of Medicaid in Louisiana.  

Boustany has consistently supported bloated farm bills, omnibus spending bills, and debt ceiling increases. In 2008, he voted for almost all of the bailouts, including the final version of the bank bailout. He has also supported earmarks and trade subsidies. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee overseeing trade, Boustany is a strong proponent of continued subsidies for the corporate welfare Export-Import Bank. – See more at: Boustany Jr. At a Glance


Boustany has continually aligned himself with the establishment in DC, such as Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and has shown himself everything but the conservative alternative that he claims to be.  All of those in the region that he represents that hold to conservative values should be appalled that he is one of the most liberal members of Louisiana’s delegation.

Pandering to the left yet again this year, Charles Boustany has sold out his “conservative” credentials and aligned himself with the likes of Mary Landrieu on the United Ballot in Lafayette.  The same ballot pushed for Boustany’s election in his 2012 run against Jeff Landry.

Just a few days ago, The Independent in Lafayette ran a piece in their paper outlining the activities behind United Ballot that are less than desirable.  Boustany aligning himself with such an organization, which reportedly costs nearly $30,000 to get on the ballot, shows exactly the character of the representative from Louisiana’s 3rd District.
