Likely to put this seat in Republican hands is tonight’s runoff winner Jeff Landry. As a small business owner, veteran and attorney, Landry understands the challenges facing Louisiana and our nation. Born and raised in South Louisiana, Landry started working in the sugar cane fields just out of high school. He then went on to serve in local law enforcement before joining the Louisiana National Guard and later the United States Army. By working for the St. Martin Economic Development Authority and co-founding his own small business, Landry understands how to leverage local resources to create jobs.
Facing off against Jeff Landry in November is Democrat candidate and business attorney Ravi Sangisetty, whose youth and inexperience is accentuated by his atrocious voting record. By his own admission, Sangisetty never voted prior to 2009 – even skipping the 2008 presidential primary election while working for Hillary Clinton. Sangisetty claims he was “apolitical” then and “didn’t have that much of an interest in politics” less than two years ago. With the country in economic turmoil, Louisiana families deserve more than what Sangisetty can offer them – unreliability. In a job that requires strong conviction and advocacy, Sangisetty’s blank voting record begs the question: What does he even stand for?
Energized and ready for change, Louisiana voters will turn to the polls in November to elect a representative who will work toward reviving Louisiana’s economy and creating much needed jobs in the district. Jeff Landry is the only real leader in this race determined to turn the page on the Democrats’ failed economic experiment.
We cannot fall for another “moderate”, such as Charlie Melancon’s failed representation for this district, by electing another liberal Democrat. The District deserves strong, conservative representation, which requires the voice of Jeff Landry for the 3rd District.
