RAPIDES GOP COMMITTEE ENDORSES ABRAHAM FOR CONGRESS (LA05)
Rapides Parish Republican Party Officially Endorses Dr. Ralph Abraham in (LA-05) Congressional Race
The Rapides Parish Republican Party voted on all Republican candidates in LA's 5th Congressional District race, and the committee has announced that Dr. Ralph Abraham has their full support and sole endorsement.
Chairman, Wayne Ryan, said, “The Rapides Republican Parish Executive Committee is excited to endorse Dr. Ralph Abraham for the 5th Congressional District. Dr. Abraham has lived out his conservative values in his professional life, home life, his community service activities and his service to our country in the military. One of the biggest accomplishments Dr. Abraham will bring back to our Congressional District, is honor, the restoration of integrity, honesty, and trustworthiness while representing us in Congress.”
"Rapides Parish and Central Louisiana are so vital for our state's future. I know that Fort Polk is just outside of the 5th District Congressional lines, but you can rest assured if elected that I will work shoulder to shoulder with Congressman John Fleming in doing whatever it takes to maintain and restore the jobs and federal defense assets we have on the ground in Louisiana. As a veteran myself, I know first-hand what it means to have these military installations in our state," said Abraham.
In response to numerous polls showing Abraham taking the lead among the other Republicans in the race, Campaign Manager Luke Letlow said, "We are encouraged that numerous polls continue to show our campaign continuing to lead the pack, but we're going to wake up every day, and assume we're in last place."
Dr. Ralph Abraham is a physician, veteran, pilot, farmer, and former veterinarian. He was raised in North Louisiana and currently serves his community as a rural physician in Mangham, LA. He is a Republican, and is focused on restoring honor, integrity, and conservative leadership to Congress. Please visit www.ralphabraham.com for more information.
