Today, Shreveport Mayor and Army veteran Adrian Perkins launched his candidacy for United States Senate in Louisiana with a video that spotlights his humble upbringing, his record of military and public service, and why he is running for the Senate. Mayor Perkins is running for the seat held by Senator Bill Cassidy.
Perkins made the following statement announcing his campaign:
“I’m running for United States Senate because our country and state are at a crossroads. We face a virus that threatens our lives, our safety, and our economy, but Washington’s political games are only making us sick. Together, we can demand a government that serves all of our people, not just the wealthy and well-connected. It’s time to take a new road, and with faith and family, we can get there together.”
