"Living, working and raising a family in South Louisiana is a privilege and unique experience. Bridget and I are proud to call this region our home. The people and cultural heritage throughout Acadiana, Imperial Calcasieu and along the Gulf Coast are a national treasure. We are truly defined by our hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, festivals, great food, vibrant music and commitment to a conservative moral compass."
Protecting the 2nd Amendment
As your congressman, I continue to be a staunch defender of the Second Amendment. As a Louisianan and protective family man, I cherish my right to bear arms just as you do. Let me be clear – the federal government must protect our Second Amendment rights – not hinder them.
"I am pro-life. I always have been and always will be. Federal tax dollars must not be used to fund abortions. That’s why I helped pass legislation ensuring not a single penny of federal money is used to pay for abortions. Americans’ tax dollars should not be going to Planned Parenthood, ACORN or any other similar group. As a doctor, I worked to preserve the sanctity of human life on a daily basis. On this issue, there is no compromise."
