Support Foster Campbell in his bid to become the fourth pro-life Democrat in the U.S. Senate
As pro-life Democrats, we have only one opportunity this election season to support a pro-life candidate for a U.S. Senate seat, and that is now in Louisiana, where Foster Campbell, a pro-life Democrat, is on the ballot on December 10th!
That is why we are endorsing Foster Campbell for the U.S. Senate Seat!
The Democratic Party targeted 12 U.S. Senate seats for pick-up in 2016, but they managed to win only two, which is not surprising to us because all their candidates were pro-choice and frequently running in midwestern seats where their positions were out of sync with the values of people they would represent.
As a pro-life Democrat, I hope you will join me in supporting Foster Campbell, the one U.S. Senate Democratic candidate this election season who supports our values.
Although Foster Campbell’s opponent Kennedy claims to be pro-life, he has never taken a vote on it. In fact, Kennedy told the New Orleans Times-Picayune when he was state treasurer that he supported abortion. He was 39 years old. Old enough to know better. Kennedy said, “I saw it in 1991 as a libertarian issue: Who is best able to make that decision, people or the government?”
IT'S URGENT THAT ALL PRO-LIFE DEMOCRATS SUPPORT FOSTER CAMPBELL!
See what others are saying about the urgency of this race:
Democrats have one final shot to flip a Senate seat: "Democrats have one final shot to flip a Senate seat -- but in order to pull off an upset, they need to quickly rally around the Louisiana candidate whose victory could be a bright spot in an otherwise dismal year. Public Service Commissioner – and jovial cattle farmer – Foster Campbell will face off against Republican State Treasurer John Kennedy, a twice-failed Senate candidate, in a Dec. 10 runoff. On the surface, it might seem like a lost cause: A Democrat running a statewide campaign in Louisiana in the Year of Trump. On the contrary, though, Campbell has a legitimate shot to upset his opponent the same way Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards did in 2015."

Democrats can't write off the last senate race:
"Local experts give Kennedy a large advantage.
On the other hand ... Democrat John Bel Edwards easily won Louisiana's gubernatorial election just last year. Runoff elections are typically very-low-turnout affairs, where strong passions on one side can produce unusual outcomes -- and it's certainly possible that a reaction for or against Trump's election could produce an unexpected one-sided turnout surge. National Democrats are apparently playing down the election, which has received practically no attention at all in the national media. I think that's an odd choice."

The Blue Dog faces a flip-flopper in Louisiana Senate race: "On the surface, this race looks like a lock for four-term Republican State Treasurer John Kennedy. The national GOP machine has rolled in to deliver its final kill of 2016, and all the talking heads have gone ahead and called it for him. That sounds familiar, doesn’t it? It wasn’t but a few days ago that people were saying the same thing about Hillary Clinton. Just last year, we heard that kind of talk in a governor’s race that saw Democrat John Bel Edwards pull off an upset victory."
