BATON ROUGE – The Chairwoman of the Louisiana Democratic Party, Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, released a statement today inviting fellow Democrats from all over Louisiana to join her at a meet and greet / fundraiser in support of Rep. John Bel Edwards gubernatorial campaign. Prior to this Saturday’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner and celebration, a separate fundraising event for the Edwards campaign will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans from 4-6 p.m. Senator Peterson urges voters to attend, and to take advantage of the opportunity to meet Louisiana’s next governor.
Having worked together extensively in the legislature to fight for Louisiana families and to bring a measure of fiscal responsibility to the budget debates, Sen. Peterson and Rep. Edwards are united in their efforts to marshal support from every corner of the state heading into this fall’s elections. Peterson has witnessed the tremendous impact Edwards has made with voters in person on the campaign trail, and she encourages supporters in New Orleans this weekend for the Jefferson-Jackson dinner to make a special effort to attend Edwards’ event.
“John Bel Edwards is going to be the next governor of Louisiana, I know it and the polls are now confirming it,” said Peterson. “I’m excited that everyone has the opportunity to meet with him in person this weekend, ahead of Saturday night’s Jefferson-Jackson event. We’re all coming together to support John Bel at the top of the ticket, and to do everything we can to help him get elected.”
