BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Gary Chambers is getting the support of Louisiana’s only Democratic federal lawmaker in his campaign for U.S. Senate.

Congressman Troy Carter officially endorsed Chambers on Friday citing what he calls Chambers’ passion.

“I have had a chance to get to know Gary and the work he has done to
fight for communities in Louisiana. He has a base of support and passion to advance
and protect this democracy. Louisiana can be a difference maker nationally like Georgia
if there is a December runoff. I’m excited to help support Gary and make that possible,” said Carter.

“I am proud to have the support of Congressman Carter. Together we will fight to defend voting rights, reproductive rights, and create an economy that works for everyone and ensures our children grow up in safer communities,” said Chambers.

Chambers is one of several candidates challenging incumbent Republican Senator John Kennedy. Kennedy for his part has already received the endorsement of former President Donald Trump.

Election day is November 8, early voting begins on October 25.
