BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Senator John Kennedy is running for re-election in 2022.

On Tuesday, Sen. Kennedy made the announcement via Youtube:

Senator Kennedy says, “Five years ago, I made a promise, a promise that I took seriously. I told you that I would work to put our country back on track and make America great again,” said Kennedy. “In the last five years, we’ve accomplished a lot, but now the socialists are racing to undo it all. So, my job—our job—isn’t finished. Today, I’m announcing that I’m running for re-election for the United States Senate.”

The 69-year-old Louisiana senator has represented the state in Congress since 2017.
