WASHINGTON, Dec. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins, a former Louisiana legislator, released the following statement congratulating John Kennedy on his election to become Louisiana's next U.S. Senator and also State Representative Mike Johnson on his election to Congress to represent Louisiana's 4th congressional district:
"I am grateful that Louisianans voted overwhelmingly to send Mike Johnson and John Kennedy to Congress.
"After 8 years under the Obama administration, our freedoms have never been more endangered. With leaders in Congress like Mike Johnson and John Kennedy, we now have an opportunity to make freedom mean something again.
"I'm excited that Mike Johnson will represent Louisiana in Congress. I've seen first hand Mike's consistent commitment to the tenets that have made our state and our nation great: faith, family and freedom. In Congress, I know he will be a champion for religious liberty just as he was in the state legislature. Mike has demonstrated not only a deep understanding of the U.S. Constitution but also a commitment to upholding and defending it.
"I congratulate John Kennedy for winning his race and I'm confident that he will stand for faith, family, and freedom in the U.S. Senate. John has committed to not just talking about the important issues, but actually addressing them. I know John will work to confirm justices who will respect the Constitution and not legislate from the bench. He will be an advocate for the unborn, our individual liberties, and for family values.
"I look forward to working with both Mike and John to impact Louisiana and our great country," concluded Perkins.
