Sammy Is Running for Office

Sammy Kershaw has officially announced his candidacy for Lt. Governor of Louisiana.


Sammy posted this statement on his Twitter page: "It’s official. I am running for Lt. Governor in Louisiana in 2010.”

Sammy, a native of Abbeville, La., plans to run on a platform that will emphasize the state’s tourism advantages and is offering what he calls “A Real Plan for the Real People of Louisiana.” That includes more emphasis on arts education, reinventing the spirit of volunteerism and other topics.

In his announcement statement, Sammy pledged, “I am running for the average, hardworking citizens of this state. The primary responsibility of the Lt. Governor is to serve as Louisiana’s Ambassador. This job is about introducing the unique people, culture and heritage of this state.” Sammy adds that he wants to focus on building the entertainment industry in the state.

A lifelong conservative, Sammy has campaigned for President George W. Bush and 2008 presidential candidate John McCain. Sammy now lives in Lafayette, La., and has just released a new single, “Better Than I Used to Be.” Sammy will appear on the Monday, May 3, edition of Larry King Live on CNN at 9 p.m. ET.
