Charles Boustany wants Medicaid expansion in Louisiana
Last year, Charles Boustany beat Jeff Landry for a Congressional seat. The two were sitting representatives, but redistricting in Louisiana left us a seat short. Their districts were combined. The redistricting itself was particularly nasty, as Boustany had no qualms about hanging his own Republican allies out to dry: Rep. John Fleming, R-Minden, on Thursday accused Rep. Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette, of actively backing a redistricting | Read More »
Rep John Fleming (R, LA-04): So, you want a Government-run health care plan, Democrats?
Fine. Sign yourselves up for it. Freshman GOP Rep John Fleming of Louisiana recently called for the Democrat-ruled Congress to live by the rules that they want to saddle on the rest of us: Over the past few weeks, members of Congress and the American people have come to know the details of the Administration’s proposed health care plan. Call it whatever you like, this | Read More »
2008: The Year of Great Humility
From the diaries, by Erick. As I was thinking about looking back at 2008 and all of the events that have gone on around the world this year, one word came to mind: humility. Bear with me while I explain this, because it might be easy to miss what I’m saying. When I say “humility,” I’m not thinking about how those the world watched most this | Read More »

Alive And Kicking
With the ouster of William “In His Freezer” Jefferson and the capture of another House seat in Louisiana, the Republican Party shows that it is anything but a spent force. Congratulations go out to Joseph Cao, the first Vietnamese-American to have been elected to Congress, and John Fleming, who beat Obama-backed Paul Carmouche. Jefferson’s loss is, of course, a blow against the kind of corruption | Read More »
A better look at LA CD-4 shows cause for concern
I had a chance back in November to meet John Fleming’s campaign strategist. He also happened to be congressman Paul Broun’s as well. Both men were in Augusta, GA the night before the general election and I enjoyed discussing politics and strategies with them both. I was invited to go back to Athens for a meet and greet and general election party but I had | Read More »
John Fleming, Republican for LA-04.
My name is John Fleming and I am running for Congress in Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District. We are the last congressional race in the country. Voters go to the polls this Saturday, December 6, and I am asking each of you to join my campaign and help start the movement to take back the House. I am a man of conviction, drive and the desire | Read More »
All right. We won in Georgia, let us move on. LA-04 is up next.
John Fleming’s website is here; contributions here, but what he probably wants right now is boots on the ground. Or you could contact the Louisiana GOP. This is a race for an open seat, and right now the Democratic challenger’s major hope is in heavy African-American turnout.
