Louisiana Republican Party, Villere urges Landrieu to cancel Biden fundraiser
Written by 

bidenThe Louisiana Republican Party and its Chairman Roger Villere are revving up its U.S. Senator election, sans a named GOP candidate today by lashing out at Louisiana Democrat and U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu.

In an email to its followers, the LaGOP lashed out at Vice President Joseph Biden’s upcoming appearance for a Landrieu fundraiser and for her record on gun legislation and Obamacare.

Here is the Republican email statement:


On Saturday, January 26, President Obama's point man for his gun control proposals, Vice-President Joe Biden, will be in New Orleans to raise money for Senator Mary Landrieu's reelection campaign. Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere, Jr. today called on Senator Landrieu to cancel the Biden event in light of the Vice President's crusade to violate the US Constitution.

"Senator Landrieu's plan to hold an event in Louisiana featuring 'gun-grabbin' Joe Biden is a slap in the face to every Louisiana citizen who believes in the US Constitution," Villere said. "I call on Senator Landrieu to cancel this event and to inform Mr. Biden that he is not welcome in Louisiana, where we still support the rule of law."

"Senator Landrieu has already violated her oath of office to support the Constitution by casting the deciding vote for Obamacare and stealing money from Medicare recipients to do so," he said. "Now is Mary Landrieu's chance to stand up for the people of Louisiana and the Second Amendment, instead of slapping us again by hosting Biden at this very sensitive time in our nation's history."

In 2012, an overwhelming majority of Louisiana voters approved the Riser Constitutional Amendment supported by Governor Jindal, the NRA and the LAGOP, which gives Louisiana the strongest state constitutional gun protection in the country. Now, President Obama is threatening to have the federal government infringe upon our constitutional rights again.

"We need a Senator who will strongly stand up for Louisiana and our 2nd amendment rights. Now is the time to see if Senator Landrieu will stand with Louisiana or if she will kowtow to her liberal friends in DC," Villere said.

Landrieu currently has a "C" rating with the National Rifle Association and has previously supported anti-gun measures.

"Ms. Landrieu's 'C' rating stands for "completely unacceptable," Villere said.

Vice-President Biden is hosting the high dollar fundraiser for Senator Landrieu at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans. It  will take place this Saturday at 4 p.m.


Bayoubuzz Note: Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court has determined the Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare" to be constitutional under the laws of the United States.
