New Video In Louisiana Governor’s Race, “On His Watch”

The Republican Governors Association (RGA) today released a new digital video underscoring Louisiana’s abysmal job creation and economic record under Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards. Titled “On His Watch,” the video features a compilation of newspaper headlines and independent rankings showing Louisiana’s economic performance has lagging behind, with fewer workers and fewer jobs, while numerous other states have shattered workforce participation rates and enjoy record low unemployment.

Despite attempts by Edwards’ official office and campaign to spin and twist the numbers, the facts are clear: Louisiana’s economy has not improved under his leadership. Rather than promoting pro-growth policies, Edwards enacted the largest tax increase in state history – while taxes have gone up, residents and jobs have left the state. Since Edwards took office in January 2016, Louisiana has lost thousands of jobs – more than any other state in the country in that time period. To make matters worse, according to new data from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), over the last year (July 2018 – July 2019), Louisiana was the only state in the nation to lose jobs.

Quite simply, Louisiana is the worst state for jobs and, as surveyaftersurvey shows, John Bel Edwards is responsible for one of the worst economies in America.

“No governor has failed his constituents more than John Bel Edwards when it comes to responsible stewardship of his state’s economy,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “Louisiana’s inability to take advantage of this booming economy is a clear repudiation of John Bel Edwards’ liberal tax-and-spend agenda.”
