John Fleming Is Backing David Vitter For Governor

Almost every week now, news breaks that another Louisiana Republican is backing Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) in the state gubernatorial race. And today, it is Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) getting behind Vitter’s run.

Fleming said in a statement that Vitter “has consistently shown the leadership Louisiana will need to effectively move forward.”

Here’s what Fleming had to say about Vitter’s record:

“As a state lawmaker, David led the fight to end ridiculous taxpayer-funded perks for local politicians. As a U.S. Senator, David is working to protect hard-working Louisiana taxpayers from Washington’s penchant for wasteful spending and higher taxes.”

“I also agree wholeheartedly with Senator Vitter’s commitment to end Common Core and its reliance on Washington bureaucrats. Louisiana parents and teachers know much better how to educate their children.”

Earlier this week, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) endorsed Vitter for governor, along with Presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
