Congressman Mike Johnson sees more power for Louisiana delegation
BATON ROUGE, La. – U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson, the Benton Republican who represents northwest Louisiana, is facing his first reelection with 60-times more money than his nearest rival.
Johnson has raised $1.1 million, according the Federal Elections Commission, and his Democratic opponent, Ryan Trundle of Shreveport, has raised $18,205.
Consequently, Johnson has spent much of his campaign holding town halls and chatting up newspaper editorial boards about how strong the state’s six relatively short-serving congressmen are.More News
