“Tonight, the Republican Party of Louisiana celebrates historic gains in the legislature and overwhelming victories on the statewide level. We'd like to congratulate Lieutenant Governor-elect Billy Nungesser, Attorney General-elect Jeff Landry, the many new Republican Legislators and the countless local Republican officials on their conservative victories.
Jon Bel Edwards campaign of deception continues. Throughout the election, Edwards has attempted to deceive the Louisiana voters by painting himself as a conservative. Edwards has attempted to make the West Point Honor Code the centerpiece of his campaign: "A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.” Yet, as his legislative record clearly shows, the Edwards campaign is based upon deception and lies.
