SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - U.S. Senate hopeful Gary Chambers held an event on Thursday afternoon in downtown Shreveport.

Chambers is running against U.S. Senator John Kennedy. He said he has a vested interest in voters in northwest Louisiana.

“When you have 20 percent of Black voters that showed up in the last U.S. Senate race against John Kennedy, then that’s a lot of votes in this parish that could get turned out, but we got to have a candidate that talks about the things that’s important to people in north Louisiana and south Louisiana. I think that’s how we build an economy where people can get a good paying job. How do we make sure that people can get good healthcare in this country, and how we make sure everybody can be treated fairly no matter who you are or what you chose 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 preserving the right to choose,” reads his website on the topic of reproductive rights.

Regarding the LGBTQIA+ community, his website states, “Gary believes that the United States Constitution provides equal protection under the law, for all people within the borders of the United States.”

The election will take place this November.
