Red Alert: GOP Senator Might Step Down After Polling Shows Another Possibility

Uncategorized

Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana caused a stir this week when he said he might run for governor of the Pelican State.

Kennedy made it clear Monday that he’s at least considering the idea of throwing his hat in the ring in the 2023 gubernatorial election, citing a growing call from his constituents to come home and give it a shot.

“I’ve spent my life and career serving the people of Louisiana,” the senator said in a statement, according to WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge. “Becky and I raised our family here and are so proud to call it home. But we can’t deny that our great state is facing serious challenges.

“To meet those challenges, Louisiana families deserve a governor who can lead our state and help solve our toughest problems.

“Over the last year, Louisianians have asked me time and time again to come home to serve as governor during these difficult times. Becky and I love the people of Louisiana. We’ve always listened to them, so I am giving serious consideration to entering the governor’s race.

Kennedy’s polling indicates that likely Louisiana voters want him in charge. A Torchlight Strategies survey found the senator leading a crowd of possible GOP gubernatorial hopefuls.

Survey respondents were asked which state Republican they would choose for the 2023 election. Kennedy garnered 21.7 percent support.

His closest competitor, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, garnered 12.8 percent support.
