Former Congressman Jeff Landry is running to beLouisiana's next Attorney General, and this morning Landry received another endorsement.

During an interview this morning on WRNO-FM in New Orleans, Congressman Steve Scalise, who is the U.S House of Representatives Majority Whip, endorsed Jeff Landry for Attorney General.

Scalise had high praise for Landry.  In this morning's interview, Scalise had this to say about Landry,


"Jeff Landry is an honest, ethical and hard-working leader who puts people over politics. Jeff Landry's record of law enforcement, job creation and principled lawmaking uniquely qualify him to be Attorney General. I know Jeff Landry will run an open, accountable and fiscally responsible office: and I wholeheartedly support him for Attorney General.  We need Jeff Landry as Attorney General to fight federal overreach, defend out conservative principles and make our communities safer."


This morning's endorsement garnered this reaction from Landry:


"Steve Scalise is a true public servant who represents Louisiana well. I am honored to have Steve's endorsement and hope to earn the votes of our neighbors in my campaign to bring honesty, integrity and conservative principles to the Attorney General's Office."


Landry is both an attorney and a small businessman in Louisiana.  Landry has also served as a law enforcement officer and he served Louisiana citizens in the former 3rd Congressional District before redistricting.
