U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette, on Wednesday received endorsements from Lake Charles Mayor Randy Roach and Calcasieu

Parish District Attorney John DeRosier.

“During Hurricane Rita and in our recovery, Congressman Dr. Charles Boustany helped to keep our region from being forgotten,”

Roach said in a news release.

“He has worked to get federal

assistance to maintain our ship channel and supported our efforts to

keep Lafayette and Lake

Charles in the same congressional district. He has a long track

record of support for our area and has always been accessible

to work with us on a variety of local matters. I know he will

continue serving our area well.”

DeRosier said Boustany is a man of integrity and honor. “I am proud to endorse him, and I look forward to his re-election

on December 8th,” he said in a news release.

Boustany said he is “honored and humbled” to have the endorsements. “Both of these men have served their constituents with

tremendous passion, and I will do the same in Washington, D.C.,” he said in a news release.

Boustany will face U.S. Rep. Jeff Landry, R-New Iberia, in the runoff election Saturday, Dec. 8.
