Following the passing of Congressman-Elect Luke Letlow, his wife Julia Letlow has officially announced her running for the available seat.
Below is a statement from Julia Letlow:
Luke and I have been best friends and a team for the last eight years, and we always believed that you have to work hard for your dreams and often that requires stepping out and taking a leap of faith.
During Luke’s Campaign for Congress last year, Luke and I traveled to every corner of Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District – from Bastrop to Bunkie to Bogalusa – and all points in between. I met many of the hardworking people of the district and listened to the dreams and ideas they have for our district.
Everything in my life and in my marriage has prepared me for this moment. My motivation is the passion Luke and I both shared
Julia Letlow says she’s running for Congress, not just because of the passion she and Luke shared, but to continue the mission Luke started.
Sandra Christophe from Alexandria has also announced her candidacy for the 5th Congressional Seat.
The election will be held on March 20, 2021. Qualifying for elections will begin on January 20, 2021.
