Paul Hollis Endorses Former GOP Opponent In U.S. Senate Race
Posted July 21st, 2014 @ 10:28am

Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy has picked up support for his U.S. Senate campaign from a former GOP competitor.

Rep. Paul Hollis, the St. Tammany Parish state lawmaker who recently dropped out of the race, announced Monday that he is endorsing Cassidy in the Nov. 4 election, instead of tea party favorite Rob Maness.

Hollis issued a statement saying Cassidy will "represent our conservative Louisiana values" in the Senate.

Cassidy and Maness are trying to unseat Democrat incumbent Mary Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth term in office. Cassidy is running with support of the GOP establishment.

If no candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote in November, the top two vote-getters advance to a Dec. 6 runoff.
