GRAVES SHUT OUT BY EBR GOP, ENDORSE CLAITOR, WHITNEY & CANDIDATE FORMERLY KNOWN AS 'STEVE'
Baton Rouge GOP chooses three candidates
The district has 74,267 registered Republicans in East Baton Rouge Parish but more than 100,000 of parish’s voters cast ballots for Republican Cassidy two years ago.
“This is the largest political group in the race, so this is a very important endorsement,” said Claitor, whose state senate district is completely in the 6th congressional district. “I’m pleased to get their seal of approval.”
“As the State Representative from Terrebonne Parish and Lafourche Parish, I am humbled and honored to be endorsed by such a distinguished organization as the EBR Republican Party,” Whitney said in a prepared statement. She also is the Republican National Committeewoman from Louisiana.
