Kennedy says he won’t run for Louisiana governor next year

by The Hill  |  Published on December 3, 2018

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said on Monday that he will not challenge Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) in the 2019 governor’s race.

“I love being in the United States Senate. I will not be a candidate for Governor in 2019. I will, however, continue to work hard every day in D.C. and Louisiana for jobs, economic growth, cheaper health insurance, a stronger military, and an end to government waste,” Kennedy said in a statement Monday.

He added that “it is such an honor to represent the people of Louisiana in the United States Senate. Right now, that’s where I think I can do the most good.”

Kennedy’s decision ends months-long speculation about whether he would try to unseat Edwards, who handed Democrats their only deep-South governorship when he defeated then-Sen. David Vitter (R) in 2015.
