On Wednesday evening former President Donald Trump threw his weight behind Dr. Julia Letlow's campaign for the Louisiana 5th district. Letlow is running for the seat that her late husband was to fill in January. Congressman-elect Luke Letlow died from COVID-19 complications before taking office.

A statement from the former President said:

Julia Letlow, a wonderful and talented person who is the widow of U.S. Representative-elect Luke Letlow, is running for Congress in Louisiana-5 at the urging of so many people who know her so very well. She is Pro-Life and strong on Crime, the Border, loves our Military, our Vets, and will always protect our cherished Second Amendment. Julia, who is so outstanding, has my Complete and Total Endorsement. The Great State of Louisiana will be thrilled! - President Donald J. Trump

A special primary election will be held March 20.
