Obama endorses Mitch Landrieu for New Orleans mayor spot
Written by

To show the importance of the future of New Orleans and possibly to offset the impact of campaign money reportedly coming in from outside Republican sources to help defeat Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, President Barack Obama has stepped into the mayoral political ring and has endorsed current Mayor Mitch Landrieu in his bid for a second term.

 

Landrieu is running to be re-elected mayor against former Civil Court Judge Michael Bagneris, NAACP of New Orleans President Denatus King and comedian Manny Chevrolet Bruno.

Below is a press release from the Landrieu campaign:

Today President Barack Obama endorsed Mayor Mitch Landrieu for reelection, applauding his efforts uniting New Orleans and progress moving the city forward.

President Obama said, "New Orleans has always been a city of bold, resilient forward-looking people who believe in a brighter future and are committed to doing their part to shape it.  Over the last four years, no one has embodied those values better than Mayor Mitch Landrieu.  Mitch has been a fierce advocate for the people of New Orleans, helping create jobs, reduce crime, improve our children's schools and rebuild hard-hit communities.  Today, with the city poised for even more progress, there is no question that Mitch has earned a second term as mayor - and I hope the people of New Orleans will give him one."

"It is an honor to receive President Obama's endorsement. Through thick and thin, he has been a true friend to the people of New Orleans, and with his help New Orleans is on the right path," Mayor Landrieu said. "In the last four years our city has come together like never before. You can feel the change. We are moving in the right direction as one city with one voice. By finding common ground, New Orleans has made great progress. There is much more to do together, and I look forward to working with the President as we make New Orleans the city we always wanted it to be."

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
