Captain Clay Higgins – the “Cajun John Wayne” is going to Congress, – much to the chagrin of the GOP Establishment.
In a runoff election Saturday Clay beat LtGov Scott Angelle – also a ‘Republican’ for the seat. He will be a strong voice for Law Enforcement and against illegal immigration! He sure won’t be silent!
Clay defeated Scott Angelle – a petroleum engineer appointed in 2004 by Governor GrandMa (Kathleen Blanco who bungled the Hurricane Katrina response) as Secretary of Natural Resources. In 2010 Scott was appointed interim LtGovernor.
Angelle ran a no-holes-barred campaign against Higgins, focusing on his unpaid back child support and rancorous relationship with his ex-wife, – who used to work in the Governor’s office. Yeah, – it was downright nasty.
Somehow voters already knew who had their backs.
