BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Gov. Edwards made remarks about Attorney General Jeff Landry’s opinion on the face mask mandate during his monthly statewide call-in radio show.
Following that, Gov. Edwards has doubled down so to speak with a letter to the attorney general spelling out that he believes “facts” have guided his decisions during the coronavirus pandemic.
In his letter, Edwards said Landry’s opinion reminded him of the line, “‘Everyone is entitled to their own opinion’, but not their own facts.”
According to the Louisiana Department of Health, as of Friday, July 17, the state has more than 88,500 confirmed COVID-19 cases.
