N.O. mayor Mitch Landrieu endorses Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton received the public endorsement of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu in the March 5 Democratic primary, citing her experience to make a real difference in the lives of Louisiana families, especially in underserved communities.

 “The stakes are too high in this election for families in Louisiana, especially in our underserved communities, and there is only one person in this race who knows how to get results for them: Hillary Clinton,” said Mayor Landrieu. “We don’t live in a single-issue country, and Hillary is no single-issue candidate. She’ll be ready on day one to make us strong both at home and abroad. And unlike Senator Sanders, who has come up with tooth fairy ideas and who does not have a long record fighting for underserved, predominately African American communities, like New Orleans, Hillary’s a proven leader who understands that being president means doing all parts of the job and delivering for working families.”
