AFP Action Congratulates Newly Elected State Lawmakers

BATON ROUGE, La. – Americans for Prosperity Action tonight congratulates Louisiana’s newly elected lawmakers Robert Mills, Beau Beaullieu, and Richard Nelson. AFP Action applauds its grassroots activists for their tireless efforts that helped spread the positive messages of these candidates. Mills, Beaullieu, and Nelson earned the support of AFP Action for their principled support of various policies, such as educational opportunities for all of Louisiana’s students, advocacy for more money in the pockets of hardworking Louisianans, and a fiscally responsible approach to solving some of Louisiana’s toughest issues.

AFP Action Senior Advisor John Kay issued the following statement:

“We are excited to see our endorsed candidates Robert Mills, Beau Beaullieu, and Richard Nelson win their respective contests and commend our activists for their hard work in helping spread these candidates’ messages. Today’s victories send a signal to lawmakers to stand up for educational opportunities for all students, protect taxpayers, and advocate for fiscally responsible solutions to Louisiana’s infrastructure. It is clear that a principled approach to policy is what Louisianans want to see in Baton Rouge.”
