New Orleans - On Monday, November 14, the New Orleans-based Independent Women’s Organization voted to endorse Foster Campbell for U.S. Senate in the runoff election scheduled for Saturday, December 10.

"IWO is proud to endorse Foster Campbell for US Senate in the runoff election scheduled for Saturday, December 10th. Foster stands with women and families as a strong advocate of the issues we fight for everyday: equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, paid family leave, and protections for survivors of domestic violence," said IWO President Lynda Woolard.

Foster Campbell has a strong record of fighting for Louisiana women and families. He plans to take that fight to Washington, D.C., where he will work to close the gender pay gap and be a partner to women as they finally win the fight for pay equity.

“I am thankful to have the support of IWO and women throughout the state of Louisiana. Facts are facts, and it’s a fact that our state will not move forward without policies that support women and their families. That’s why, as a United States Senator, I will continue to value the voices of Louisiana women, and I will raise my voice for equal pay, paid family leave, and policies that support victims of domestic violence,” said Campbell.

Before the primary on November 8, Campbell was endorsed by the state's top Democrat, Governor John Bel Edwards as well as dozens of influential New Orleanian community leaders.
