Louisiana Representative Mike Johnson was declared the winner of the second Louisiana’s Fourth Congressional District debate, co-sponsored by the Caddo and Bossier Parish Republican Parties.
Held at Bossier Parish Community College Thursday night, the nearly 90-minute debate featured candidates Johnson, Trey Baucum, Elbert Guillory, Oliver Jenkins, and Rick John.

This morning, party officials released results of the audience poll after the debate:

50.0%  –    Mike Johnson
15.5%  –    Elbert Guillory
14.7%  –    Trey Baucum
11.2%  –    Rick John
8.6%   –    Oliver Jenkins

“I’m grateful that our message is resonating so well with the people,” said Mike Johnson via an email press release. “We made the point last night that record matters more than rhetoric. My record shows that I’m the candidate who will fight every day for the best interests of the hardworking people of our district, and achieve results.”

At the debate, Johnson pointed to his record as a “full spectrum conservative” who has fought to limit government, lower taxes and reduce regulations on business owners and job creators.  He also highlighted some of his work as a constitutional law attorney, who has successfully defended America’s founding principles, religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and our right to bear arms.
