America Rising Releases New Video: “John Bel Edwards: An Obama Democrat”

America Rising PAC released a new web video today using John Bel Edwards’ own words to establish that he is a liberal Democrat in the model of President Obama and the national Democrat Party establishment, and out of touch with Louisiana voters.

Edwards, clearly conscious of the deeply negative view of President Obama and his policies – especially ObamaCare – among Louisianans, has sought to downplay his longstanding support of the Obama agenda on the campaign trail.

The video includes footage of Edwards applauding President Obama’s nomination at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, Edwards admitting he voted for “the Democrat” in the past three presidential elections, and Edwards affirming his party affiliation at a pre-runoff campaign event.
