RELEASE: Congressman Mike Johnson Endorsed Raymond Crews

BOSSIER CITY - Today, The Committee to Elect Raymond Crews announced the endorsement of Congressman Mike Johnson.

Johnson said, "I am delighted to provide my enthusiastic endorsement of my good friend, Raymond Crews, to fill the seat I had to vacate to serve in Congress. He is a true limited government conservative, a patriot, a family man, and a Christian leader of exceptional character and integrity. I can think of no better person to represent the wonderful people of District 8 in Baton Rouge."

"There are very few endorsements that could mean as much as one from Congressman Mike Johnson. As a longtime friend, I have seen Mike's heart for service time after time. He is principled, passionate, and proven, and he continues to display those attributes on the national stage. As the previous holder of the District 8 seat, he set a very high standard, promoting the recognition of human life as invaluable from conception, fighting for smaller government, and leading the conservative cause, and I intend to continue in that vein. Congressman Johnson's seal of approval should further comfort those seeking the candidate to best represent them," said Crews.

Crews finished first among four Republican candidates in a special election on March 25th with 41% of the vote. He will face Robbie Gatti in a runoff on April 29th.


Raymond is a combat veteran who served 17 years in the United States Air Force and Air Force Reserve, flying combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. After his service in the military, Raymond flew for major airline companies and later started two small business here in Northwest Louisiana.

Raymond is very active in the community and his home church of First Bossier, where he recently served as Chairman of Deacons.

He is married to wife, Dianah, who is a Chemist and Science Teacher and has two children Caitlin (16) and Joshua (14).
