Last October, after he placed third in the primary race for lieutenant governor, entertainer Sammy Kershaw threw his support behind Jay Dardenne, the first-place finisher, rather than Caroline Fayard, the Democrat who placed a close second.
That was last year. Today, Billy Nungesser — Dardenne's primary challenger in the lieutenant governor's race — announced he received Kershaw's support this time around. Check the video:
Last week, another 2010 LG candidate, St. Tammany Parish president Kevin Davis, endorsed Nungesser, and earlier this month Nungesser earned the support of Sen. David Vitter.
