Rep. Walker Hines Joins GOP

November 12, 2010

Gives Republican Party 51-50 Edge in Louisiana House of Representatives

Metairie – Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere released the following statement upon learning that Representative Walker Hines had become a Republican and gave the GOP a majority in the Louisiana House of Representatives:

“For the first time since Reconstruction, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the Louisiana House of Representatives. On behalf of the Republican Party of Louisiana, I welcome Representative Hines to the GOP and thank him for his service to Louisiana. I invite all Louisiana citizens who share our commitment to limited government to join our cause. Prior to the 2007 legislative elections, Democrats held a 16 seat majority in the House. This dramatic shift is more evidence that the freedom loving people of Louisiana have rejected the Democratic Party’s liberal agenda.”
