State Rep. Julie Emerson (R-Carencro) has racked up yet another honor. She has been named as one of America’s most persuasive millennial activists and politicians.
An organization called Micgoat named Emerson the 10th most persuasive millennial activist and politician in the country. The list included people like Tomi Lahren, former Google employee James Damore, Turning Point USA head Charlie Kirk, former Blaze TV host Lawrence Jones III, gun rights activist Antonia Okafor and a bunch of other people we can safely guess most Hayride readers have never heard of. The list includes both conservatives and liberals.
Micgoat’s write-up of Emerson is as follows: “Republican. Millennial Legislator @LouisianaHouse#District39. @LAGOPChair candidate. Emerson thinks : ”It’s time for the Grand Old Party to get some fresh new blood.”
Emerson gained national attention with her video announcing her entry into the LA GOP race. The video was targeted towards millennials. The Hayride’s Charles Keenan wrote the following about Emerson last month:
Rep. Emerson is one of the most popular young legislators in Louisiana. She also happens to be the youngest one. Her work across the party aisle last year for criminal justice reform made national headlines. Yet, a true member of the so-called “Party of No”, she still has one of the most conservative voting records in the Louisiana House of Representatives.
After 14 years, Roger Villere is retiring as chairman of the Republican Party of Louisiana. Chairman Julie Emerson would certainly be a jolt of lightening into a state party that has had some trouble fundraising over the past couple of years.
Emerson has many things going for her. She’s young and hungry, she’s a committed conservative, and passionate about her beliefs. Those are things are important in a state party chair. Emerson is a very attractive candidate for state party chair and receiving yet another honor will surely help her candidacy.
