Cassidy Launches Sixth Television Ad: Stop Biden
Baton Rouge—Bill Cassidy for U.S. Senate today launched their sixth television advertisement, a response to Vice President Joe Biden’s statement during last week’s presidential debate, that his administration would “transition away from the oil industry” that supports hundreds of thousands of workers and countless local economies in Louisiana.
Cassidy also released a statement in response to Biden’s repeated promises to eliminate oil and gas:
“Biden and his coastal elite buddies will still get the fuel for their private jets from somewhere, but it will be our folks in Louisiana who will be out of work,” said Dr. Cassidy. “Biden and the Left will strip the jobs away from Louisiana’s energy workers over my dead body.”
Louisiana’s energy industry contributed $73 billion to our state’s GDP and supported 249,800 jobs last year. It also provided $4.5 billion in state and local tax revenue, as well as $14.5 billion in wages to in-state workers.
