Governor Edwards Not Welcome in Republican Party

In response to a recent report by a liberal political blogger, LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere issued the following statement:
"For the record, John Bel Edwards would not be welcomed to join the GOP. Story is false, but has provided great comic relief! I have not spoken with Governor Edwards or anyone on his staff. Edwards, the former Democrat caucus leader, stands in opposition to the conservative principles of the Republican Party and just recently supported Hillary Clinton for President. As Governor, Edwards has proven to be a supporter of big government, higher taxes and cronyism. While we strive to have a big tent party, John Bel Edwards' positions and beliefs are located on another hemisphere."
