Trump endorses Louisiana House bid of wife of congressman-elect who died of COVID complications
"She is Pro-Life, is strong on crimes, loves our military, our vets, and will always protect our cherished Second Amendments," Trump said.
President Trump has endorsed a 2022 bid for a Louisiana House seat by the wife of the congressman-elect who died of COVID-19 complications in December 2021.
Rep.-elect Luke Letlow, a Republican, died just days before being sworn in to represent Louisiana's 5th Congressional District. He was 41.
His wife, Julia Barnhill Letlow, is now running for the open seat.
"Julie Letlow, a wonderful and talented person who is …. running for Congress in Louisiana-5 at the urging of so many people who know her so very well," Trump said Wednesday. "She is Pro-Life, is strong on crime, loves our military, our vets, and will always protect our cherished Second Amendment."
Letlow responded by tweeting: "It's truly an honor to receive President Trump's endorsement and I look forward to joining in the fight to save our country by putting America first!"
