SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana U.S. Senator John Kennedy’s re-election bid is now official.

Kennedy made the announcement Tuesday morning that he will run for re-election in 2022.

Kennedy’s campaign says the Senator has raised $9.5 million and has over $7 million cash on hand.

“Five years ago, I made a promise, a promise that I took seriously. I told you that I would work to put our country back on track and make America great again,” said Kennedy. “In the last five years, we’ve accomplished a lot, but now the socialists are racing to undo it all. So, my job—our job—isn’t finished. Today, I’m announcing that I’m running for re-election for the United States Senate.”
