Former Woodville mayor and (CD36) Congressional candidate Dr. Brian Babin is getting the endorsement of a decorated U.S. Navy Seal.
Leif Babin left the Seals two years ago and now works in New York. But this week he has been campaigning with his father.
Roughly a hundred people showed up Friday at Roberts Meat Market in Orange for a Dr. Brian Babin for Congress event.
He is one of eleven Republicans vying for the seat being vacated by announced U.S. Senate candidate Steve Stockman.
Leif is supporting his father in opposing the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare.
Dr. Babin was regional chairman of the Ronald Reagan campaign and says he believes - as Reagan did - that as government expands, liberty goes away.
Babin calls himself a pro-life, pro-family, pro 2nd Amendment candidate. Of the 12 Republican candidates, Babin is the only one who has lived in this area.
Leif Babin is married to cable news network anchorwoman Jenna Lee.
