Louisiana Democratic Party’s First Congressional District Candidate Dr. Tammy Savoie Finishes Hard-Fought Race

BATON ROUGE, LA – The Louisiana Democratic Party released the following statement seeing the results of the election.

“The team that jumped in with both feet to support Dr. Savoie was inspiring!” Stephen Handwerk, Executive Director said. “Congressman Scalise is one of the most powerful legislators in Congress and to see the determination of our endorsed candidate along with countless volunteers and supporters show that more than ___% of the district would rather see someone else represent them is powerful and something you can bet we will build on.”

These last few months have been some of the toughest – but also the most inspiring – of my life. I’m incredibly proud to have fought for my country in uniform for 38 years. But I can honestly say that meeting thousands of hardworking Louisiana families and small business owners all over Southern Louisiana – and fighting for them – fighting to fully fund our kids schools, fighting against unfair tariffs that target Louisiana – fighting to protect and extend our access to quality, affordable health care – has been the proudest moments of my life. Louisiana deserves someone who will fight for her. We may not have won the election, but we were indeed victorious tonight in all the things that matter the most. Raising our voices, practicing a peaceful and positive democratic campaign that took our message directly to the voters – and always remembering it was never about me – it was always about all of you. Thank you for giving me the opportunity. I won’t ever forget it.”
