Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle running for Congress
Angelle, who is from Breaux Bridge, started out the governor’s race polling less than 2 percent, but came within 41,000 votes, out of 1.1 million cast Oct. 24, of beating Vitter for a slot in the November runoff.
The congressional elections are Nov. 8, 2016, with a runoff, if necessary, on Dec. 3.
“As your congressman,” Angelle said in his announcement, “I will defend the Second Amendment, protect the sanctity of life and fight for religious freedom. I will stand up for our brave law enforcement officers and I will never cave to political correctness. I’ll continue to be a partner to our coastal ports, support our local farmers, and work with our economic development partners to cut the red tape and allow job creation.”
