Rep. Bob Hensgens announces candidacy for Louisiana State Senate

BATON ROUGE — Today, Louisiana State Rep. Bob Hensgens, District 47, announced his candidacy for the District 26 seat of the Louisiana State Senate.
A conservative Republican, Hensgens is a strong advocate for fiscal responsibility, and he has demonstrated this during his time serving as a state legislator and previously as mayor of Gueydan.
Earlier this year, Hensgens authored a Constitutional amendment specifically addressing the need for spending restrictions, because he believes Louisiana’s government should not outgrow the state’s economy.
