Shreveport Mayor to run against Bill Cassidy for US Senate position
SHREVEPORT - The Mayor of Shreveport is looking to unseat Republican incumbent Bill Cassidy.
According to Shreveport-based ABC News affiliate, KTBS, Mayor Adrian Perkins officially launched his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Louisiana Wednesday morning, with a last-minute entrance into the competition.
Perkins made the following statement announcing his campaign:
“I’m running for United States Senate because our country and state are at a crossroads. We face a virus that threatens our lives, our safety, and our economy, but Washington’s political games are only making us sick. Together, we can demand a government that serves all of our people, not just the wealthy and well-connected. It’s time to take a new road, and with faith and family, we can get there together.”
At this time, Louisiana is expected to hold an election for U.S. Senate on November 3, 2020.
