Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins: If you oppose me, you oppose Constitutionalist mission

Clay Higgins
U.S. Rep. 3rd District

Editor's note: Congressman Clay Higgins' represents Louisiana's 3rd Congressional District. He was elected to a third term on Nov. 3, 2020 with 68% of the vote.

I return to Washington, D.C., this week. It’s quite an insane place these days. Viper pit. 

It’s appropriate, at this juncture, to clarify the overwhelming support for our Constitutionalist mission as expressed by actual voters on Election Day, Nov. 3 2020.

The paid political experts of Louisiana who pontificate endlessly from their arrogant perch presented absurd predictions for our election.

Rep. Clay Higgins

I didn’t say anything in response to those geniuses. I knew we were strongly supported. I just kept working.

Following are a few examples of our support:

► We won by 50 points on a day of very heavy voter participation. 

► Our win compares very favorably with every Congressional election since 2012. 

► We received 44,606 more votes than (former Republican 3rd District Congressman Charles) Boustany’s best showing in 2012.

► LA-03 had the second highest voter turnout percentage statewide in 2020.

► The highest number of voters LA-03 has ever recorded in ANY election (up 20,204 from 2016).

► The highest turnout to percentage of registered voters that LA-03 has ever recorded. 

► Historically, LA-03 has recorded the third-highest voter turnout percentage in the state. This is the first election where LA-03 out performed almost every other district in percentage of voter turnout. 

So whether you’re a RINO (Republican in name only) establishment guy career politician or an avowed socialist makes zero difference to me.

I don’t like career politicians. I don’t respect smug political expert liars. And I don’t serve the establishment RINOs.

If you oppose my Congressional service, then you oppose our Constitutionalist mission.

Do what you like. Plan your next move. Go ahead. I advise you take a close look at these numbers, though. If you stand against "We, the People" of LA-03, you will lose.

I’m just going to keep working.
