U.S. Senator David Vitter announced yesterday that he endorses Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser for Lt. Governor. He said at a press conference at Mike Anderson’s Seafood Restaurant:
“I’m endorsing Billy Nungesser for Lt. Governor, because I believe he’s the right person we need for the job,” said U.S. Senator David Vitter. “Billy’s a proven job creator and business leader. He’s a conservative reformer, whose focus is to protect Louisiana taxpayers.
“More importantly, Billy is a tested leader and tireless fighter whose resume includes helping lead rebuilding after the four hurricanes that hit Plaquemines Parish during his term as President. And he isn’t afraid to stand up to President Obama, the federal government or any private company to defend Louisiana.
“A staunch pro-life advocate and friend of our sportsmen – we need Billy Nungesser in Baton Rouge as our next Lt. Governor.”
Mr. Nungesser replied that he was happy to receive the endorsement because Senator Vitter recognizes his business successes, his dedication to our seafood industry, the oil industry and tourism as well as his dedication to protecting the rights of Louisiana citizens.
At a recent tea party meeting where Mr. Nungesser was a keynote speaker, one member spoke up and recognized Mr. Nungesser’s “tea party spirit” in standing up to Obama and this administration’s over-reaching growth during the oil spill crisis.
Mr. Nungesser’s statements at the press conference went hand in hand with the tea party movement’s mission to decrease taxes and spending.
