Villere: "Would the real John Bel Edwards please stand up?”

LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere issued the following statement following tonight’s gubernatorial debate:

“Tonight, we saw a clear distinction between the liberal policies of the Louisiana Democrat party and those of the Republican candidates for governor. The bottom line is that John Bel Edwards is a liberal Democrat. He’s currently cloaking himself as some faux wanna-be conservative in an attempt to deceive Louisiana voters. It only takes one look at his voting record to see his liberal side. He's like Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. He’s voted to raise taxes on hard-working families, he’s voted against religious freedom, he’s defended radical unions and he's opposed educational opportunity for Louisiana children. There is no telling what damage he’d do to our state as governor. Tonight, as we analyze the debate, can someone please ask for the real John Bel Edwards to please stand up?”
