(Daily Advertiser) – A poll on the 2019 governor’s race released by GOP Congressman Ralph Abraham’s campaign shows a competitive head-to-head race if Abraham faced Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards in a runoff, but it also shows most voters still don’t know Abraham.
In 2014, as I campaigned for the Public Service Commission against Foster Campbell, I had the privilege of meeting many of the multiple candidates running for Congress that year from Northeast Louisiana. That year saw an open Congressional seat and, as the PSC district I was a candidate in overlapped that 4th Congressional district the one Dr. Ralph Abraham represents, I wound up at various pro-life breakfasts, Republican women’s events, and voter forums with many of the candidates for Congress. (For some reason, my opponent didn’t show)
Republican U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham has entered the 2019 governor’s race, saying simply, “I intend to win.”
