Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed today by
Louisiana State Representative Joel Robideaux (R-Lafayette) and former
Deputy Chairman of the Louisiana State GOP Charlie Davis.
Rep. Robideaux and Mr. Davis will serve as Louisiana co-chairs for the
Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign. In making his endorsement
and assuming campaign co-chair responsibility for Louisiana, Rep.
Robideaux offered the following statement:
“Ron Paul is the only Republican running for President who has the
credibility to actually follow through on his commitment to stop the
runaway train of federal bureaucracy and spending.
“None of the other Republican candidates have offered a plan to make
any meaningful cuts in federal spending. In fact, the other
candidates only seem interested in wearing the conductor’s hat and
tooting the horn a few times as the train goes over the cliff.
“Only Dr. Paul has actually offered a plan to cut spending in real
terms rather than just trimming the planned increases. Dr. Paul
has proven he has no interest in wearing the conductor’s hat or tooting
the horn. He is only interested in pulling hard on the brake to
keep the train from going over the cliff and taking all of us down with
“As a CPA, and Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee with
responsibility for taxation and revenue, Dr. Paul is the only candidate
I trust to deal with this immense problem and restore fiscal sanity to
America’s budget process. Only Dr. Paul has consistently proven
his commitment to limited government and less spending over the last 35
A former Deputy Chairman of the Republican Party of Louisiana, Charlie
Davis has held many positions in the Party since 1995, and was recently
elected unopposed to a new term on the Republican State Central
Committee. A chief organizer of the “Pro-Life, Pro-Family”
delegate slate that won the majority of the state’s 2008 Republican
delegates, he also served as a delegate to the 2004 Republican National
Convention and was a member of the 2008 Electoral College.

Forum and is married to Ellen Wray Davis with one son and two
daughters. Mrs. Davis is former Political Director of GOPAC,
former Executive Director of the Republican Party of Louisiana, and
2008 Republican National Convention delegate.
“Ron Paul best addresses the core problems that face America—the
bloated federal bureaucracy, an ever-growing national debt, and a
systemic loss of personal liberties that are threatening the very
foundation of our Republic,” said Mr. Davis in his endorsement as he
joined Rep. Robideaux for the Louisiana campaign co-chairmanship.
Ron Paul 2012 campaign Louisiana State Director Pete Chamberlain
welcomed the endorsements as well as the intensity the co-chair
structure will bring to the Bayou State effort.
“We are excited to announce Charlie Davis’ and Rep. Joel Robideaux’
leadership in the Louisiana campaign. The support of such highly
esteemed Republican leaders, both of whom are on the vanguard of the
conservative movement in Louisiana, speaks highly of the work already
in progress and forthcoming efforts. It’s clear that the Ron Paul
campaign is building the momentum and organization it will take to win
Louisiana,” said Mr. Chamberlain.
