CAMPBELL ACCEPTS ENDORSEMENT OF BOLD: "I'M HUMBLED TO STAND WITH THIS HISTORIC CIVIC ORGANIZATION."
New Orleans, La. - Candidate for U.S. Senate Foster Campbell accepted the endorsement of the Black Organization for Leadership Development (BOLD) Wednesday in New Orleans.
The endorsement of BOLD includes the support of prominent African-American leaders within the New Orleans community. "I'm the only candidate who has a record of fighting on behalf of every constituent. With me, you know you're getting someone who brings results and betters communities for everyone," said Campbell.
BOLD, currently led by president Darren G. Mire, was founded in 1968 and has influenced statewide politics since then. Since its inception, BOLD has worked tirelessly to better the community through the political process, while focused on citizen engagement, community uplift and voter education.
"Foster Campbell has BOLD's support because it's evident which candidate is looking to better our state for everyone," said Mire. "We supported Governor Edwards and we're thrilled to support Foster for the U.S. Senate."
Governor John Bel Edwards, whose win in last year's gubernatorial runoff was aided by increased turnout of African-American voters, has also enthusiastically endorsed Campbell over his Democratic opponents.
"There are communities just like this one all over Louisiana, and they need someone who will fight for them just like our Governor is doing. Gov. Edwards cannot do it alone. He needs a partner in D.C. who is going to fight for Louisiana," said Campbell. "I'm humbled to stand with this historic civic organization."
