Hollenshead endorses Gatti

Todd Hollenshead, who finished third in the State Senate District 36 primary with 26% of the vote, officially endorsed Ryan Gatti in the State Senate District 36 runoff to be held November 21st.  Gatti finished second in the October 24th primary with 34% of the vote.  

Todd Hollenshead Endorsement Statement:
"Today, I want to publicly endorse Ryan Gatti in the State Senate District 36 runoff on November 21st and I ask that you join me in supporting him to represent us all in Baton Rouge.
 During this election season at public forums and events, I have gotten to know him, and like me, I feel he has Louisiana's best interests in mind.  In Ryan, I see a person with the tenacity to do what is right for Northwest Louisiana.  He is a Christian, a dedicated husband, and devoted father. 
 Ryan and I both grew up working with our hands.  I went to work in the oilfield to pay my way through college.  He worked for his dad's salvage yard.  We both learned early on the value of a strong work ethic.
 We need fresh ideas and someone that won't be a "yes man" to anyone but the people he represents.  Career politicians helped Bobby Jindal make a mess of our state.  As I have said throughout this campaign, the definition of insanity is electing the same legislators over and over again and expecting different results.
 Lobbyists in Baton Rouge know that certain legislators will be a good return on their investment, which is why they keep flooding campaign accounts with PAC donations.
 We need someone like Ryan who will make things right again and represent the people of this district, not lobbyists and out-of-state special interests.  I am trusting now that Ryan will fight for our businesses and our families, make our teachers and children's education a top priority, protect our precious unborn and build a firewall around the Second Amendment. 
 I am asking that you also support him with your vote.  Join me and let's all work together to make sure we elect Ryan Gatti on November 21st."

  1. Henry Burns is a good man. I don't think I've ever seen him run an attack ad. That said, some survey firm called me and wanted my opinion on the Senate race. They asked if the fact that Ryan Gatti supported Democrats like John Bel Edwards would sway my vote or not. I was a little surprised at their question...is there any truth to this statement?

    1. I received the same call. It was worse than an attack ad. Henry has flipped on commom core, taxes, he was 100 per cent behind Jindal, who is a big reason for the mess the state is in. Ryan is to be commended for supporting Edwards as opposed to Vitter. It shows he is voting for the person, and not strictly along party lines, which is what many people in Bossier parish do, without looking at the voting records and character of the candidate

    2. Yes but it does show questionable reasoning to support someone who is consistently for bigger government, higher taxes, and more regulations while belonging to the Republican party.

    3. I would understand your argument if Edwards was some fantastic conservative crusader. That's not the case though. Like I said, it shows questionable reasoning if you are a conservative and yet you support someone who is very solidly liberal.

  5. Mr. Gatti is a supporter of Mr. Edwards and has contributed $2000 to his campaign. He also hosted a meet and greet event for Mr. Edwards back in July, 2014.

  6. On facebook, Mr Gatti directly responded to an educator that he "has not endorsed Edwards". Anon 11:29A and 5:00P, you are incorrect. In this instance "support" and/or "endorse" needs to be put in a political context.
