NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) - A Baptist minister says he’s making a run for governor in the 2015 gubernatorial election.

Rev. Jeremy Odom, a Democrat from Natchitoches, says he has enough support to get his name on the ballot for the election scheduled Nov. 3, 2015.

KNOE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1cuU2Rm ) Odom and supporters began testing the waters last November, meeting with various groups statewide and voicing the need for changes in the way Louisiana does business.

Odom, who’s also a tax consultant, says he’s convinced the state is on a “perilous course” and he feels obligated “to do all I can.” Odom sees “the lack of honesty and integrity” in Baton Rouge as motivation to seek office.

If elected, he hopes to create more jobs with living wages in Louisiana.
