BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
The three congressional candidates looking to represent Louisiana's sixth district faced each other at a meeting of the Baton Rouge Press Club Monday.
Current congressman Bill Cassidy is a republic and is trying to fend off a challenger from the Libertarian Party and another who is running as an independent.
"I'm not sure how you feel about it, but the idea of one party democracy doesn't sound proper," said Rufus Craig, a member of the Libertarian party. "We have to have a choice and people need to know there is an alternative to what is currently occurring in Washington."
Richard Torregano is running as an independent and he offered a similar view of a broken system in Washington.
"The idea that we keep sending democrats and republicans to congress and expecting different results is kind of, well we are trying to repeat the same thing over and over," Torregano said. He called the current system which favors two main parties- insane.
The incumbent and republican in the race, Bill Cassidy said he would stick to his conservative principals.
"If you vote for me you are going to get the fellow who believes in those conservative values," Cassidy said. They have helped create the American dream for some people and have helped restore it for others."
Louisiana's Sixth Congressional district covers all of Baton Rouge and some parts of the area surrounding the Capital City. Bill Cassidy has represented the district since 2008.
