Congressman Boustany, some Acadiana officials back Vitter
Written by 

boustanyThe David Vitter for Governor Campaign picked up endorsements today of some government officials within the Acadiana Parishes.  Vitter's campaign sent out the following email blast under Congressman's Charles Boustany's name, which, as a subject, said, "Acadiana Rallying Behind Vitter" .

Vitter needs to pick up voters in that conservative part of the state which went primarily for its favorite son, Scott Angelle, in the primary. 

Of those "Acadiana" rallying for Vitter are listed below 

Dear Stephen,

Our next governor is going to be taking over at a pivotal time for Louisiana, and especially our coast. Rallying behind our vibrant oil and gas industry is critical right now. We’re on the cusp of seeing major development projects coming online, and we need a leader to embrace the energy industry, expand it, and make sure it thrives. 

David Vitter is that leader. Period. We fought side by side to end President Obama’s job killing moratorium. 

Lafayette Mayor/President Joey Durel and I endorsed David several months ago, but this week we added a bunch of new endorsements to our growing Acadiana list.

  • Louisiana Oil and Gas Political Action Committee
  • Senator Jonathan Perry
  • Representative Nancy Landry
  • Representative Taylor Barras
  • Representative Bob Hensgens
  • Representative Stuart Bishop
  • Representative Blake Miguez

The choice is clear for Governor. David is conservative, he works harder than anyone, and you know he’s got our back.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
