2019 ENDORSED CANDIDATES
Governor John Bel Edwards
In his first term as governor, John Bel Edwards inherited the largest budget deficit in the state’s history. After years of hard work, he and a bipartisan group of legislators worked together to stabilize Louisana’s budge for the first time in a decade.
On his first day in office, Gov. Edwards expanded Medicaid. As a result more than 450,000 working Louisianans now have access to care. That access to care has cut our uninsured rate by more than half, saved the state hundreds of millions of dollars, created thousands of jobs, and kept our rural hospitals open. But most importantly, it’s saved lives.
