Ralph Abraham, often known as “Doc,” was born and raised in Louisiana. He grew up breaking horses and building fences on a farm in Richland Parish near where he and his wife of 43 years, Dianne, still reside today. Dianne is a member of the Ouachita Parish Republican Women’s Club and Ralph is an associate member! Together, they have three grown children and nine grandchildren. They are members of Alto Baptist Church.
Ralph is currently serving his third term in Congress and represents Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District. He has served on half a dozen committees, including the House Agriculture Committee and the House Committee on Veterans Affairs. He has intimate knowledge and experience on a multitude of issues facing Louisiana.
Ralph is a general family doctor and has practiced his entire career in the rural Louisiana Delta where he has treated folks from all walks of life. He’s also spent 10 years as a veterinarian, served as a First Lieutenant in the Army National Guard, and volunteers as a pilot with the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Air Force’s Civil Air Patrol.
Doc has spent his entire life fighting on the right side of the issues that matter to Louisiana. As a veterinarian, a doctor, a farmer, a soldier and as our congressman – he has led from the front and gotten things done for Louisiana.
And that is why he is running for governor. Doc is running for governor because he knows that hardworking Louisianians deserve better. As governor, he'll unleash Louisiana's full potential and create a state that thrives for generations to come.
Join the SWLA Republicans for
SWLA's First Straw Poll
We are excited to be hosting the first ever straw poll in the state of Louisiana. There's no better place to have it than in Iowa, Louisiana which not only pays homage to the state of Iowa for being first in the nation for presidential primaries, but also the city of Iowa is a good representation of how the rest of the state will vote in the upcoming gubernatorial election.
Our goal is to highlight all of the excellent and well-qualified Republican candidates who will be on the ballot in October. We especially want to highlight two wonderful gubernatorial candidates in Ralph Abraham and Eddie Rispone.
Our hope is to not only highlight their names and credentials to Southwest Louisiana voters, but to also give them an extra early boost to help their campaigns throughout the dog days of summer.
Ticket includes access to the event/speakers, jambalaya lunch plate cooked by local KC's (includes jambalaya, coleslaw, and black-eyed peas, drink, and dessert), and the ability to
cast your vote in the first-ever Straw Poll!
This is a joint effort put on by the Republican Women of Southwest Louisiana and the Republican Parish Executive Committee.
The Iowa Straw Poll will feature the following candidates.
If you wish to reserve your seat and pay at the door please email email@example.com with your name, telephone number, address and number of reservations to be held.
We look forward to seeing you there!
When: June 15th, 2019 - Noon - 4 pm
