About 15 years ago, I sat in our weekly Chapel Service at Calvary Baptist Academy, listening to an attorney speak passionately about his work defending the unborn children of our nation. He spoke so passionately in fact that he lit a fire in me, and that very day I decided that one day I wanted to do what this man did- I wanted to be an attorney dedicated to protecting unborn children.
This past legislative session, I once again got to listen to this same attorney speak passionately in defense of the most vulnerable members of our society. Only this time I was an attorney too, sitting at the table with him in the Louisiana Capitol, helping him end the violent, barbaric practice of Dismemberment Abortion.
This attorney is Mike Johnson, and I firmly believe that he is the only correct vote in the 4th Congressional District. When I met Mike in 7th grade, I had no idea how much he would affect my life. We stayed in touch since then, and he was always ready to recommend reading that would help me grow in my conservative principles, help me with applications for college and law school, and give me advice about which internships would give me the best chance of protecting the innocent.
His passion for the conservative principles upon which our nation was founded has never wavered, and in the midst of the budget fights of this past session, he found time in his already heavy load of legislative battles to fight once again for those who cannot fight for themselves. I am so proud to have been able to work with such a passionate, intelligent, and principled man. I know that he would continue to work hard to ensure that North Louisiana is well represented and that our country as a whole does not stray from the vision the Founding Fathers had for this republic. Send him to Washington, you won’t regret it.
