WATCH: Sen. Kennedy announces bid for reelection, says he’d ‘rather drink weed killer’ than ‘let you down’
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.
