November 1, 2019

BATON ROUGE, LA (November 1, 2019) – The Louisiana Association of Business and Industry’s affiliated political action committees have released regional sample ballots listing endorsed candidates for the November 16 election. Early voting begins Saturday for the runoff election and runs until November 9th (except Sunday, November 3rd). Polls will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily.

Below is a list of the 28 candidates for executive, judicial, legislative and BESE races who stand for the principles of free enterprise and were endorsed by the political action committees affiliated with LABI. Voters are encouraged to share them with friends, colleagues and employees, or print their sample ballot as they are allowed to bring a marked sample ballot to assist them in voting.

Of the 75 primary elections in which our affiliated PACs issued a sole endorsement and the candidate faced an election, LABI-endorsed candidates went 51-8. Let's finish this historic election cycle strong! It's time to GEAUX VOTE!
