Louisiana state GOP Rep. Stefanski announces bid for AG
BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana state Rep. John Stefanski, a Republican, announced his 2023 bid for Attorney General on Monday. The Crowley lawmaker, who was first elected to the legislature in 2017, chairs the House and Governmental Affairs Committee, which was recently at the center of a contentious redistricting battle.
The Louisiana Attorney General seat, which holds the highest legal authority in the state’s executive branch, is currently held by Jeff Landry who is expected to run for governor next year. Other possible candidates for the seat include Republican Liz Murrill, who currently works at the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office and Union/Lincoln Parish district attorney John Belton, an independent. The election will take place Nov. 18, 2023.
