Fayard endorses Campbell for U.S. Senate
NEW ORLEANS - Caroline Fayard endorsed fellow Democrat Foster Campbell for U.S. Senate Tuesday.
Fayard failed to make the December runoff election. Campbell and John Kennedy are vying for current U.S. Senator David Vitter's seat in Washington.
Campbell and Fayard had heated political debates leading to the election last week. Fayard said in a statement she has hope in Campbell.
"After the setbacks suffered last week by the Democratic Party nationally, it gives me great hope to know that Foster Campbell will protect President Obama's legacy and fight for the same Democratic Party values that Secretary Clinton, myself, and so many others have championed. I'm happy to stand with Democrats across our state and country in support of him," Fayard said.
