Jeff Landry grew up in the small town of St. Martinsville where his mother was a schoolteacher and his parents took him to church every day. Later, Jeff learned the value of hard work in the sugar cane fields and then proudly joined the National Guard, serving in Operation Desert Storm. After returning home, Jeff worked as a police officer and sheriff’s deputy, and later started a successful business and went to law school.

As a public servant, both as a U.S. Congressman and the Attorney General of Louisiana, Jeff Landry has shown strength and courage fighting for common sense values and bringing people together to deliver solutions.

On October 14, 2023 Jeff Landry became the 57th Governor of Louisiana in a historic primary victory. As Governor, he will not be afraid to make the changes necessary to turn Louisiana around, deliver results, and fight for working families.
