Louisiana Congressman Doctor John Fleming releases a statement today saying he will endorse former Congressman Jeff Landry in Landry's bid for Louisiana Attorney General.

Congressman Fleming says,

"Today I'm excited to announce my support of Jeff Landry for Louisiana Attorney General. Jeff is a highly respected Conservative who will protect the freedoms and values so important to the people of Louisiana."

Fleming represents Louisiana's 4th district in Congress. The familly physician has served as a doctor for more than 30 years, and he has served four terms in office.

The Congressman adds,

"As a former member of Congress, Jeff was a staunch battler against Washington's long arm of intrusion into our lives and businesses. He worked hard for smaller government, protection of our constitutional freedoms and liberty, and demanded an accountable Congress that answers to the people. As Attorney General, Jeff has the integrity to defend the Louisiana constitution and advocate important issues like consumer safety and fighting crime and corruption. We can trust in him to apply common-sense conservative principles as our Attorney General."

Fleming's district makes up all of northwest Louisiana, but it also goes from Union Parish to Beauregard Parish and includes St. Landry Parish.

The primary election is slated for October 24, and the general election is scheduled for November 21.
