Washington, DC — Tonight, Louisiana voters went to the polls and rejected Trump’s sabotage agenda and the Republican candidate, Eddie Rispone. In response, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement:

“President Trump’s disastrous health care agenda was front and center this election and voters in Louisiana soundly rejected it by denying the governorship to a Republican who supports the president’s war on health care. In Virginia, Kentucky, and now Louisiana voters have sent a message that they support Medicaid expansion, ensuring protections for pre-existing conditions and want nothing to do with Republicans’ efforts to sabotage their health care. This election sends a warning to Trump and Republicans across the country that their repeated attacks on Americans’ health care will continue to cost them at the ballot box.”
