Shreveport, L.A. – Today, Leader Stacey Abrams, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate and former Georgia State House Minority Leader, endorsed Army Veteran and Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins’ candidacy for U.S. Senate in Louisiana.
“Adrian has been a fighter all his life,” said Leader Stacey Abrams. “He grew up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Shreveport, graduated from West Point, and served our country on three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now a Harvard-educated attorney, he ably leads Shreveport as its Mayor. Adrian knows the struggles Louisiana families face because he’s lived them. That’s why I know as Louisiana’s next Senator, Adrian will fight to give families access to quality healthcare, education and jobs and he’ll work to erase inequality and protect the sacred right to vote.”

Even after her historic campaign for Governor that attracted the attention of millions across the nation, she continues her fight to make sure that every American’s right to vote is protected. I’m proud and honored to have Stacey’s support and as Senator, I’m looking forward to working with her to create a better life for all Louisianans.”
