Today, Republican State Representative John Stefanski announced his campaign for Louisiana Attorney General.
“As the top law enforcement officer in Louisiana, my first priority will be defending Louisiana families against the rise in violent crime,” said Stefanski. “Violent crime in our major cities is out of control and I’m ready to take a proactive stand against it. As Louisiana’s next Attorney General my message will be crystal clear – the rule of law will be respected and enforced or the consequences will be severe.”
In addition to his announcement, Stefanski also named critical members of his campaign team.
“My level of commitment to this race is reflected in my team. We’ve put together one of the winningest and what I believe is the best campaign team in America,” said Stefanski. “More importantly, my entire team has Louisiana roots. They are personally invested in this race and have a genuine concern for the future of our state.”
