TEA PARTY of LOUISIANA (TPoL) endorsed candidates and Positions on Amendments, Taxes & other issues on Nov 21, 2015 Ballot

1st and foremost GO VOTE!!! We can't change this mess unless YOU VOTE and Vote Correctly!!!

 

We have to put on top of our list: 

 

Lenar Whitney, State Representative District 53  - TPoL endorsed for re-election!!!!! Lenar has a proven conservative record and fights for the people and less government, less spending and NO TAX increases! She was the number one conservative State Representative based on her voting record in the 2015 La Legislative Session where they passed 3/4 a Billion $'s in new Taxes on Louisianans. She is a staunch supporter of STOP Common Core.  Now you know why the Fascists are spending so much money on an opposition candidate to help remove her from the legislature for the next term.  Don't let them succeed - RE-ELECT LENAR WHITNEY State Representative District 53.

 

Jeff Landry, Attorney General  - TPoL endorsed !!!We need a proven conservative to fight every battle to maintain our states’ Rights against this overbearing Federal Government!!! And bring every conservative value entrenched in the founding of this country into perspective on every legal issue facing Louisiana in the trying time of today and the future! Jeff is that proven conservative and has the track record to prove it!

 

Billy Nungesser, Lt. Governor  - TPoL endorsed !!!! A proven Louisiana patriot!!! Our alternative is to elect a Obama like Lt Governor and put his party back in influence positions of Louisiana again with a proven secularist like Kip Holden and his "One Baton Rouge" program.

 

David Vitter, Governor  - TPoL endorsed !!!We need a proven conservative to fight every battle to maintain our states’ Rights against this overbearing Federal Government!!! Fight Common Core and bring every conservative value entrenched in the founding of this country into perspective on every legal issue facing Louisiana in the trying time of today and the future! David is that proven conservative and has the track record to prove it! Our alternative is to elect a Obama like Governor and put his party back in charge of Louisiana again with a John Bel Edwards.

 

BESE Districts - One of the most IMPORTANT of your local elections especially after the results of the primary in the other Districts in order to STOP Common Core or at least have some opposition to it in the out of control BESE board!

 

The following are the TPoL endorsed candidates in their respective districts. The following candidates are advocates against Common Core and Federal control of our local schools!

 

District 4:Mary Johnson Harris - TPoL endorsed!!! 

 

District 6:Kathy Edmonston - TPoL endorsed!!! 

 

Other Races very Important to getting anti-Common Core, smaller government, less spending, no tax candidates are:

 

Beth Mizell, State Senate District 12 - TPoL endorsed!!! 

 

Rick Edmonds, State Representative District 66 - TPoL endorsed!!! Great new conservative blood to displace incumbent Darrell Ourso a staunch supporter of Common Core and no one whom you would want to represent you - A tax and spend Crony capitalist! Help us get the right candidate in and kick the wrong one out onto the street where he belongs!!! (NOTE: We must remove the Crony Capitalist incumbent - Darrell Ourso - who also voted for all of the $700+Million in Tax increases and only by your voting for Rick Edmonds can we do this!)

 

Ryan Heck, State Representative District 69  - TPoL endorsed!!! 

 

Beryl Amedee, State Representative District 51 - TPoL endorsed!

 

Following are races in which TPoL believes you have at least 2 very qualified candidates to choose from and in keeping with our policy not to endorse 2 candidates running against each other TPoL feels compelled to recommend that you vote for one of these 2 candidates instead of the incumbent who voted for all of those $700 Million in tax increases during the 2015 La Legislative session:

 

Following are candidates TPoL suggest you vote for as the best possible candidate from the slate you have to vote for:

 

Clint Cointment, Ascension Parish President

 

When voting for your local State Legislators recall that the 2015 Louisiana State Legislature voted to raise taxes by over $700 million and voted for a scheme that would usher in Medicaid Expansion under Obamacare in Louisiana?
