Louis J. Roussel Jr. was a powerful businessman and political kingmaker from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was known for his long-time financial support to the campaigns of Edwin Edwards, governor of Louisiana from 1972-1980, 1984-1988, and 1992-1996, and Bill Dodd, a former lieutenant governor (1948-1952) and state education superintendent (1964-1972), who failed in determined gubernatorial bids in 1952 and 1959. Roussel contributed a total of $500,000 to Dodd's campaigns and $600,000 alone to Edwards' failed 1987 race against Buddy Roemer, then a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from Louisiana's 4th congressional district.
