Gary Chambers speaks in downtown Shreveport
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — U.S. Senate hopeful Gary Chambers hosted an event Thursday afternoon in downtown Shreveport.
Chambers is running against US Senator John Kennedy. He said he had a vested interest in voters in northwest Louisiana.
“When you have 20% black voters who showed up in the last U.S. Senate race against John Kennedy, then that’s a lot of votes in that parish that could turn around, but we have to have a candidate who talks about the things that are important to the people of northern Louisiana and southern Louisiana. I think that’s how we build an economy where people can get well-paying jobs. How do we make sure people can get good health care in this country, and how do we make sure everyone can be treated fairly, no matter who you are or what you choose to do with your body ? ” he said.
Chambers spoke in support of Hope Medical Group for Women and the LGBTQIA+ community.
“Gary is committed to protecting reproductive freedom and upholding the right to choose,” reads his reproductive rights website.
Regarding the LGBTQIA+ community, his website states, “Gary believes that the United States Constitution provides equal protection under the law to all persons within the borders of the United States.”
