BUSINESS REPORT & NRA ENDORSE BUDDY CALDWELL FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL
BUSINESS REPORT EDITORIAL:
Many coaches win because of the team they assemble around them. Many district attorneys and law enforcement officials support Caldwell because of the results of the team at the attorney general’s office. The head coach appropriately gets the credit. Caldwell leads the team.
Caldwell and his team have been very successful in settlements and fines against pharmaceutical companies and BP, getting millions for the state and the taxpayers.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services even ranked his office No. 1 in the nation in criminal Medicaid fraud recovery and No. 1 in efficiency.
Caldwell, who is a former district attorney with much trial experience, faces former congressman Jeff Landry, who has never tried a criminal case before a jury. That is a big difference.
