Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his decision to run for reelection, rumors that he's on the short list to replace US Attorney general Jeff Sessions and the state's growing Medicaid fraud.

Landry tells KEEL listeners that his running for another term as state AG is based on his "concern about the rise in crime, not only around the country, but in Louisiana. We've worked extremely hard to build alliances, to work with local, state and federal law enforcement offices."

Landry also commented on numerous national stories in which he was named as a dark horse to replace the resigning Sessions. "It's a big compliment," Landry says, "But that decision is going to be made at the White House. We've worked close with this administration, because I believe the things that the President is doing, from a policy perspective, are productive."
