Dawn Starnes Talks Election Endorsements


Dawn Starnes from NFIB was in studio to talk with Brian about their endorsements for the statewide elections.  She explains what issues matter the most to the residents of Louisiana and how based on that, they decide to support a certain candidate.  In regards to the Governor’s race, NFIB is holding on on endorsing a specific candidate until after the runoff.  They will endorse incumbent Billy Nungesser for the Lieutenant Governor position and Jeff Landry for Attorney General.  Dawn says that NFIB will not get involved in any of the other statewide races.  She also talks about where they are leaning in the state Senate and Representative races.  Hear the full interview here!
