Clyde Holloway enters Fifth District Congressional race

FOREST HILL, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – Republican Public Service Commissioner Clyde Holloway  has announced his candidacy for recently vacated Fifth District Congressional seat. 

"In every way my boots fit this district. I want to leave our children and grandchildren a great hope and security of living in a country with endless possibilities for their future…not to be in economic turmoil such as Greece."   We have incredible issues before this nation…the staggering deficit, Obamacare and amnesty for illegals are just a few of the predicaments that burden and threaten our nation's future," said Holloway. 

Holloway served three terms in the U.S. House two decades ago. He registered for the election on Wednesday.

He is now serving on the Public Service Commission and says he jumped into the race because he thought Gov. Bobby Jindal and exiting Congressman Rodney Alexander unfairly tried to rig the timeline to benefit Republican state Sen. Neil Riser, an accusation the three men have denied.

Alexander is leaving to become state veterans affairs secretary for Jindal.
