On Feb. 13, U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown ruled in favor of dismissing a lawsuit filed over a year and a half ago on behalf of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority–East (SLFPA–E), a regional levee authority, by New Orleans-based law firm Jones, Swanson, Huddell & Garrison, that accused nearly 100 oil, pipeline and energy companies of contributing to coastal land loss.

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell was vehemently in favor of this lawsuit and, in turn, hired outside counsel in an attempt to fan the flames of those in his political circle.  This has shown itself to be nothing more than another attempt by a liberal Democrat shrouded in Republican clothing of trying to use his political influences and gaining favors at the expense of the taxpayers in Louisiana.

A recent post in the Washington Examiner stated “the litigation contract brokered between SLFPA–E and Jones has been controversial from the beginning with many questioning the SLFPA–E’s legal standing to bring such a lawsuit and Louisiana Attorney General James “Buddy” Caldwell absorbing some of the criticism for signing off on SLFPA–E’s ability to hire outside counsel.”  The same piece states that Jones has a reputation going after “legacy lawsuits” against oil and gas interests and making million on such lawsuits.

It is apparent that Caldwell has nothing but personal interests involved in his decisions regarding these legacy lawsuits and has chosen to utilize his office in a manner inconsistent of that of a public servant and more of one that has committed malfeasance in office.

The following was received in email format regarding fundraising goals that have been reached by the Landry campaign for Louisiana Attorney General.

Last week, we learned more about the Attorney General’s race.

As you may have seen in the news, I raised over $760,000 last year. My campaign ended 2014 with over $1 million in the bank.

My opponent, Mr. Caldwell, raised $39,000 in all of last year. He ended with only $300k in the bank after fundraising for several years.

Why? Because Louisiana citizens want an Attorney General who is ethical, honest, and truly conservative.

People are tired of politicians who have been in office a lifetime and only go with the political winds to stay in office.

I registered as a Republican at the age of 18 because I believe in our Party. I served in Congress because I wanted to stop Obama and Pelosi’s destructive policies. I am pro-life, pro-gun, pro-jobs, and anti-debt.

Mr. Caldwell was a lifelong Democrat who may have changed parties but has not changed who he really is. Last year, Caldwell endorsed Mary Landrieu for re-election. He is part of the old Buddy network in Louisiana. Watch this video to see how Caldwell spends our tax dollars to reward personal backers.

There is a real difference between Caldwell and me. And with this election being so critical for Louisiana, it is incredibly important that I earn your support.

I need your help if we are going to put a real Republican in the Attorney General’s chair. So I am asking for your help in three ways:

Today, please join other Republican leaders in pledging your support here.

Please call me at 337-313-4537 if you have information, an event you want me to attend, or if you have any questions.

And if you can support me financially as well, I will gladly accept your contribution here.  
Whatever you do, please pledge your support today at

Together we will continue to promote strong families, freedom, and economic opportunity in Louisiana.

Your candidate for Attorney General  
Member of Congress, 112th Congress


Caldwell’s report shows him raising $39,000 in 2014, ending the year with $302,000 in the bank.

Landry brought in more than $766,000 in donations for the same period. Coupled with a $392,000 personal loan, Landry reported having more than $1 million in his campaign account.

Republicans have a critical election in Louisiana this year.

I am not talking about the Governor’s race – although that is important.  I am talking about our state’s next Attorney General.

Right now Louisiana has an Attorney General who spent nearly his entire lifetime as a Democrat and only became a Republican for the sole purpose of trying to hold onto his taxpayer-funded job.

He has been called out by news media across our state, including in an investigative report on WWL TV in New Orleans, for unethical practices like giving huge state contracts to his campaign contributors – paying them millions for work that could have been done by his office.

He attacked the oil and gas industry which employs thousands of our neighbors, and he continues to do so by supporting legacy lawsuits that cripple our vital energy lifeline.  

He told a national, liberal blog that Obamacare didn’t go far enough because there was not enough government control.

And our Attorney General, liberal Buddy Caldwell, endorsed Mary Landrieu for re-election last year.

Need I say more?

Simply put, we need a real Republican to serve as Attorney General of Louisiana.

Serving our nation in uniform, I received commendations for my eleven years of service in the Louisiana National Guard. I am an attorney who has worked across our state helping job creators grow Louisiana’s economy. Prior to law school at Loyola, I helped start and run a successful small business – employing people in our state.

I served as a Sheriff’s Deputy and as a Police Officer, in addition to being an attorney, so I understand law enforcement first hand.

Unlike almost everyone in my home Parish, I took a stand when I registered as a Republican at the age of 18.  I believed then, as I believe now, that our Party – the Republican Party – is the Party of freedom, families, conservative values, and economic opportunity.  I served as a Delegate to the Republican State Convention and served on the Platform Committee.  When I saw no one else stepping up, I re-established a Republican Parish Executive Committee. 

When I saw the destructive policies coming from Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi – I decided it was time to step up and serve my nation once again. 

I ran for Congress, won, and defended our values in the United States House of Representatives.

And although my old Congressional District did not survive redistricting when we lost a seat in our state, I proved that speaking out and fighting for what you believe could work in government.

I was named the 4th most conservative Member of the entire U.S. Congress. The national Washington Examiner newspaper called me “the only honest man in Washington” for standing up for our principles.

I fought the oil and gas moratorium that harmed Louisiana’s economy… and I sent the message which is still true today that DRILLING EQUALS JOBS. I truly opposed Obamacare.  And I proved I was a real fiscal conservative by saving hundreds of thousands of dollars from my office budget… and you know what I did… I returned it to the taxpayers.

I declined special Congressional healthcare and retirement benefits.  If you don’t get special benefits as a citizen, I don’t need them as an elected official.

Now I see a need, along with many other strong Republicans, for a new Attorney General here in Louisiana. 

I hope you will join me in this campaign.  I need your support, I need your help, I need your vote, and I need your prayers.

Please learn more about my campaign at

Thousands of Louisiana citizens have already signed up to help – contributing financially to our effort and speaking to their friends about the need for change.

We need a real Republican to serve as Attorney General.  I hope you will stand with me.

As Louisiana’s next Attorney General Jeff Landry will bring honest, conservative leadership to the office

LAFAYETTE, LA – Former U.S. Representative, small businessman, and attorney Jeff Landry is announcing today that his campaign has more than $1 million in campaign cash-on-hand going into this election year.

The breakdown of this impressive fundraising haul will be available when the campaign files its disclosure report prior to the February 15 deadline.

“Despite donors being engaged in the very contested Congressional races last year – our campaign has received overwhelming support from Louisiana residents and businesses who want their families, freedoms, and the rule of law protected,” said campaign manager Millard Mule. “With just over 10 months until Election Day, our campaign is building the momentum and resources needed to be victorious.”

“I am humbled and grateful for this support,” said Landry, “Our campaign continues to build momentum. People realize we need honest, conservative leadership in the Attorney General’s office.”

Landry raised nearly $4 million in his previous campaigns for Congress.
