Louisiana GOP Attorney General Jeff Landry on Wednesday announced will run for governor.
Landry made the expected announcement in a roughly seven-minute-long video in which he touted his accomplishments and set forth his vision for leading the state, according to news reports.
"Sadly, today, crime has taken hold,” Landry say in the video, according to local TV news station FOX 8. "Incompetent mayors and woke district attorneys are playing a dangerous game of catch and release."
Landry will run in 2023 for the post being left open by Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards, who because of state laws on term limits will not be eligible to seek a third consecutive term.
"In New Orleans, people are scared to pump gas or walk to their cars," Landry also said in the video. "Our capital city has one of the highest murder rates in the nation and other cities around our state are not far behind."
