Some big news today out of Louisiana:
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards is the latest Democrat to come out with an endorsement of Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins in the Nov. 3 United States Senate race.
Edwards, the Deep South's only Democratic governor, backed fellow West Point graduate Perkins against incumbent Sen. Bill Cassidy.
“We are at a critical moment in our state and nation,” Edwards said. “Now more than ever, we need steady leadership at all levels of government that will commit to put politics aside and work in a bipartisan way for all Louisianans. As a fellow West Point graduate and Army officer, I know that Adrian is once again ready to answer the call to serve.
“In Louisiana, we’ve overcome tremendous obstacles by putting people over politics. Adrian will be a strong, independent voice for our state at a time when Washington is paralyzed with partisan politics. He has been a steadfast partner as mayor, especially as we stand together to fight COVID-19. That’s why I’m asking my fellow Louisianans to join me in voting for him this November.”
