The Advertiser - Kennedy Courts Small Businesses
U.S. Senate candidate John Kennedy solicited support of small business owners during a press conference in Lafayette on Monday.
Flanked by two dozen supporters at Veron's grocery store, Kennedy said he would advocate for small businesses if elected next month.
He criticized his opponent, U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu for her stance in a debate televised Sunday night.
"My opponent, Sen. Landrieu thinks Washington is working just fine for America and just fine for Louisiana," Kennedy said. "She is wrong. And she would know that if she just talked to a small businessman or a small businesswoman."
