West Monroe -- A former Louisiana Governor could be getting back into politics.

Former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards says he will announce Monday if he'll be running for Congress.

The 86-year-old Edwards said he will declare his decision when he speaks to the Baton Rouge Press Club.

Edwards spent eight years in federal prison on racketeering charges.

Federal law does not prohibit or limit felons from running for Congress.
