With the retirement of Sen. David Vitter (R), several qualified candidates have come forward for his seat. The jungle primary held by Louisiana this November will feature candidates from all parties and the top two vote getters will advance to a run off in December. From this crowded field it is key to endorse early so as the best pro-prosperity candidate can make it in to one of those top two spots.
Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA 3) has a track record in the U.S. House that shows his commitment to pro-business policies that reduce tax burdens and also promotes free and open markets.
Serving as a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee and as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight from 2011-2014, Boustany played a pivotal role protecting taxpayer dollars by rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse in federal government programs including Medicare, Medicaid, and in entities such as the Internal Revenue Service.
His campaign website states:
"Dr. Boustany helped lead the effort to put forth a tax reform proposal to lower individual and corporate rates, simplify the code, and improve American competitiveness."
