Baton Rouge, LA- Following a unanimous vote, the Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana is pleased to announce its endorsement of Senator Bill Cassidy for re-election to the United States Senate. As Louisiana’s senior Senator, Senator Cassidy has shown himself to be a staunch conservative and has brought a unique set of skills to the Senate.
During his first term of office, Senator Cassidy established himself as a significant voice on conservative policy issues in the United States Senate. Yet, by building relationships with Senators of every political stripe, he avoided becoming bogged down in Washington’s political swamp. As a result, Senator Cassidy secured big wins for Louisiana, from flood recovery and coastal restoration funding, to lower average healthcare costs and massive assistance during the Coronavirus pandemic. His close relationship with President Trump ensured that Louisiana’s needs took center stage early in this crisis. He has since become one of the President’s most trusted advisers on healthcare policy.
“We are proud of the work that Senator Cassidy has accomplished for the people of Louisiana,” stated LAGOP Chairman Louis Gurvich. “After spending twenty-five years working as a doctor in Louisiana’s healthcare system, Senator Cassidy is one of the most informed voices in all of Washington. His hands-on medical experience and breadth of knowledge about public healthcare policy are unsurpassed at precisely the time when his expertise is most needed. We at the LAGOP are confident that with another term, Senator Cassidy will continue advancing Louisiana’s interests and working to KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
