BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Former President Barack Obama has endorsed Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins in Louisiana’s U.S. Senate race.

Obama’s support for Perkins came in a list of dozens of endorsements for Democratic candidates in the Nov. 3 election that the former president released Friday on Twitter. It was Obama’s only endorsement for a congressional candidate in Louisiana on the list.

Perkins is challenging Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in a long-shot bid to unseat the incumbent. Perkins is one of five Democratic contenders and is the highest-profile challenger to Cassidy.
