Today, Governor John Bel Edwards officially endorsed Shreveport lawyer and community leader Marshall Jones for Congress in the open Fourth Congressional District.


“Louisiana and the Fourth District need a Congressman who can work across party lines to get things done for our state,” said. Governor. Edwards.  “That leader is Marshall Jones.  Like me, Marshall is pro-military, pro-life, and pro-business.  My campaign for governor was about putting Louisiana first, and giving every man, woman and child the opportunity to succeed. We need Marshall in Congress to fight with me to give our state a prosperous future, and I’m asking everyone in the Fourth Congressional District, regardless of party, to join me in supporting him in this election.”


“I am very proud to receive Governor John Bel Edwards’s endorsement,” commented Jones. “I am also very proud of Gov. Edwards’ remarkable strength and foresight in leading the state’s response to the Flood of 2016 and other crises over the last several months. Like Governor Edwards, I truly believe in the people of this great state and in creating a better Louisiana for the benefit of our families, our children, their future, and their safety.”


This endorsement adds to a growing list of law enforcement officials, teachers groups, workers groups, and prominent business leaders who have publicly endorsed Marshall, including: multiple Sheriffs and District Attorneys, the Louisiana Association of Educators (LAE), the Louisiana Federation of Teachers (LFT), and the AFL-CIO.
