Pro-Angelle super PAC emerges

by Jeremy Alford, LaPolitics

The Love For Louisiana PAC will be at play in the 3rd Congressional District race.

Consultant Bill Skelly is back with another super PAC this cycle after running one last year to support Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle’s bid for governor. He is sticking with Angelle, though, and has formed the Love For Louisiana PAC in the 3rd Congressional District race.

In an interview Skelly laughingly said the name had nothing to do with one of Angelle’s taglines from the 2015 election: “The last name is Angelle. It has two L’s. It stands for ‘Loves Louisiana.’”

The Bautsch Group has been retained to oversee fundraising and the super PAC is currently shopping for a media consultant.

Super PACs are political action committees with a special designation that allows them to raise unlimited amounts of money with no giving caps whatsoever.
