Louisiana Democrats Thank Renee Fontenot Free and Congratulate Gwen Collins-Greenup

BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Democrats released the following statement on the results of the Secretary of State race.

“It’s always a good sign to see a Democratic candidate resonating with voters in Louisiana, and Gwen Collins-Greenup did exactly that,” Louisiana Democratic Party Executive Director Stephen Handwerk said. “Democrats have a strong record of protecting voter rights, upholding our electoral integrity, and restoring trust in whatever office they’re in. Louisiana cannot afford to have another year of scandals, inefficiency, and oversight that has plagued the office in the past. It’s time for a change.

“We’re so thankful for all the work Renee has done throughout her campaign,” Handwerk said. “She brought a level of professionalism and experience to the race that was needed to keep the other candidates honest. We’re certain her message of electoral integrity and electoral security will be held to keep the next Secretary of State in check and move our state forward.”
