LAGOP Chairman's statement on Paul Hollis leaving Senate race

Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere issued the following statement regarding State Rep. Paul Hollis’ decision to drop out of the race for United States Senate: 

“As a businessman and elected official, Paul Hollis’ conservative leadership has been an asset to Louisiana. Running for elected office is a trying, tiring process, but Paul did so with a great attitude – meeting and working with party activists around the state to spread his message and vision. Paul ran a positive campaign, talking about his ideas and plans for the future without resorting to attacking his fellow Republicans. He knows our ultimate goal - defeating Mary Landrieu and retiring Harry Reid as Majority Leader – can only be achieved with a united Republican Party.

“We look forward to working with Paul in the future to win elections and advance conservative solutions to the issues facing our state.”
