LAGOP: “Sangisetty Backs Pro-Abortion, Anti-Gun, Supporters of Obamacare”

October 27, 2010

-Baton Rouge – With just one week to go in the race to serve as Louisiana’s representative from the 3rd Congressional District, it’s time for Ravi Sangisetty to explain why he says one thing and does another.

Sangisetty’s work history and record of political contributions reveal him as liberal Democrat marching lock step with his party’s national leadership and -it’s time Ravi come clean about his support for pro-abortion, anti-gun, supporters of Obamacare.-

“It’s is simply hard to believe that any candidate willing to be honest with the voters of South Louisiana could consider themselves a conservative while working for Hillary Clinton and financially supporting Barbara Boxer,” said Republican Party of Louisiana Communications Director Aaron Baer. “These two liberal Democrats, supported by Ravi Sangisetty, have worked tirelessly to advance the far left pro-abortion, anti-gun, big-government agenda in Washington, D.C. and it’s time Sangisetty explain how any ‘conservative’ could possibly support them.”

“Voters in the 3rd District aren’t looking for a Congressman who pals around with liberal leaders but one they can count on to fight for their conservative principles,” said Baer. “In this race – that candidate is clearly Jeff Landry.”
