Congratulations to our friend and pro-life champion Jeff Landry on his election! On Saturday, Jeff Landry won the Gubernatorial election outright, garnering 51.6% of the vote, avoiding a runoff with abortion proponent Shawn Wilson.
Landry took a leading role in defending our pro-life laws, ensuring that all three abortion facilities closed after the reversal of Roe v. Wade. He has been an ally to the pro-life movement for many years. We are excited for the future for life under Governor Landry!
Louisiana Right to Life Federation (LARTL) is also thrilled to announce our endorsement of Liz Murrill for Attorney General. As Solicitor General, Liz has passionately defended Louisiana pro-life laws in both state and federal court, including before the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, due to Liz’s work of going above and beyond for life, LARTL presented Liz with the 2022 Leadership for Life Award.
Her opponent, Lindsey Cheek, is an extreme pro-abortion candidate and supports abortion on demand. If elected, she will be the most pro-abortion Attorney General in Louisiana history. Louisiana could expect that Cheek would be the same type of Attorney General as Kamala Harris was in California.”It is incredibly important we get out the pro-life vote again on November 18th!
Pro-life candidates were also the top vote recipients in the races for State Treasurer (John Fleming), Secretary of State (Nancy Landry), and Lt. Governor (Billy Nungesser).
In addition to the success for the pro-life movement in statewide elections, the Louisiana Legislature became more pro-life than it was before the primary election. A number of newly-elected candidates in both the House and Senate are more pro-life than previous members.
Upgrades in the House of Representatives
Upgrades in the Senate:
Rick Edmonds of Senate District 7 and Alan Seabaugh of District 31 also won election, adding strong pro-life voices to the Senate.
Key Run-Offs to Watch
Our voter guide will be updated soon for the November 18th election!
