Louisiana Legacy, the premier PAC supporting the re-election of Senator Bill Cassidy just released a video highlighting the broad support for Cassidy among conservative legislators across the State of Louisiana. The video is a cinematic checklist of all the things Bill Cassidy has done to better Louisiana and highlights some of the key initiatives of the senior senator, including his work on lowering prescription drug costs, ending surprise medical billing, and championing the Paid Family Leave Act, which he worked hand in hand with President Trump’s daughter and White House advisor Ivanka Trump.
This video is well timed with Senator Cassidy’s official qualifying for the 2020 race later this week. Clearly, LA Legacy is ready to work to get this man another 6 years and they’ve got the firepower to do it. According to sources, a pretty lofty digital buy has been placed to get this ad, or some variation of it, up statewide.
Some of the legislators featured include Representatives Tony Bacala, Michael Echols, Dodie Horton, Mike Johnson, Tim Kerner, Jack McFarland, Bob Owen, Thomas Pressley, Shreman Mack, Tanner Magee, Foy Gadberry, and Rick Edmonds – to name a few. Video certainly highlights the strong support Senator Cassidy has from all corners of the state. That isn’t a surprise, as Cassidy’s approval ratings in a red state are fairly solid.
With qualifying starting today and going through Friday, this splash of support comes in spite of a weak field of opposition made a little stronger by Shreveport mayor Adrian Perkins jumping into the race. We’re happy Perkins is in – the previously-announced candidates generated little in the way of evidence that they could even make a notable race against Cassidy. Perkins can’t beat him, but at least he’ll raise enough money to get on TV and give Louisiana’s voters a reason to go to the polls beyond the presidential contest in November.
