U. S. Congressman Ralph Abraham
Congressman Ralph Abraham’s announced today that he is officially a candidate for Louisiana Governor in 2019, and he made the emphatic statement that, “I intend to win.” Accordingly, we figured this would be a great opportunity to re-introduce Congressman Abraham to subscribers who may be unfamiliar with him.
We’re doing so by providing a replay of the videos we originally published on February 19, 2018 when he appeared before the Baton Rouge Press Club (BRPC) and declared he was strongly considering entering the race. Back then, he stated, “Louisiana deserves better than John Bel Edwards,” and he further expressed his frustration that Edwards has a propensity to “say one thing and do another.”
Congressman Abraham had little difficulty citing examples of Edwards “saying one thing and doing another” when he was asked for some by Sound Off Louisiana founder Robert Burns. Video coverage of Abraham’s examples follows:

Meanwhile, Abraham also expressed his sentiments entailing Gov. Edwards having taken his fight to permit the Louisiana transgender community to utilize the public restroom of their choice all the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court as evidenced in the following video clip:

Abraham’s commentary largely mirrored that of Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in his appearance before the BRPC on May 23, 2016, for which video coverage follows:

Landry ultimately prevailed in his legal fight with Edwards over the matter, but not before Louisiana taxpayers had to expend a small fortune on Edwards’ steadfast resolve on the matter in taking it all the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court!
In response to a question by AP reporter Melinda Delatte about “where you would cut if you won’t raise taxes,” Abraham provided highly detailed examples of what he cited as Louisiana Medicaid inefficiency he’s encountered in his own medical practice, and video of that exchange follows:
