(KALB) - Republican Senator John Kennedy announced Monday that he is seriously considering entering the Louisiana governor’s race and will be making a decision soon.

On Monday, the Louisiana GOP officially announced they are supporting Attorney General Jeff Landry in the governor’s race.

“Jeff Landry is a strong leader ready to transform Louisiana. Jeff’s conservative vision for our state is one of job creation, better schools, safer streets, and raising expectations of state government,” LAGOP Chairman Louis Gurvich said. “The Republican Party of Louisiana proudly endorses Jeff Landry and urges all Louisiana Republicans to unite and support his candidacy.”

The Louisiana GOP said that while it was formerly reported that they were endorsing Landry last week, they said that was “leaked” information.
