Republican Attorney General Jeff Landry declared that conservative television and radio personality Laura Ingraham would make a "great governor," less than a week after Louisiana's largest business group's decision to hire Ingraham to speak at an event drew criticism.
Ingraham praised Confederate General Robert E. Lee, blasted New Orleans for taking down Confederate monuments, made fun of the city's Mayor Mitch Landrieu and derided the #MeToo social media movement while serving as keynote speaker for the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry's annual meeting Feb. 8.
She also closed her remarks at the LABI meeting by saying that she might buy property in Louisiana and decide to run for governor in 2019. Ingraham has also been discussed as a candidate for statewide office in Virginia where she lives as well.
"Laura Ingraham would make a great governor. LIKE if you agree!" wrote Landry on his Facebook page Sunday on top of a link to an article detailing Ingraham's appearance before LABI, including her comment about running for governor.
