Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), who is challenging Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in the 2014 Senate race, announced on Thursday that his 17-year-old daughter is pregnant and due later this summer.

“Earlier this year, Laura and I learned we will become grandparents this summer. Our children have been the greatest blessing of our lives and we welcome our grandchild as a joyous addition to our family,” Cassidy said in a statement to the Times-Picayune. “Our daughter now faces a more challenging future than her peers. She has our unconditional love and support.”

Cassidy’s daughter is a senior in high school in Baton Rouge, La. and is unmarried.

Cassidy has a 100 percent score from the Pro-Life Coalition.
