Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) announced on Twitter Tuesday that he will be running for reelection in 2022. No other candidates have officially announced to run against him. This would be his second term.

“I promise I will always be your voice during the good times and the bad,” Kennedy tweeted alongside his announcement. “Come hell or high water, your values will be my values. I will never be silent when the radical nut jobs tell me to sit down and shut up.”

“I will not let you down,” Kennedy ends the video. “I would rather drink weed killer.”

Kennedy won his first election in 2016 with 60% of the vote. The incumbent senator before him, David Vitter, was also Republican.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
