Julia Letlow, widow of GOP congressman-elect who died of coronavirus, will run for Congress

The widow of Rep.-elect Luke Letlow, who died after contracting COVID-19, will run to represent the Louisiana congressional district he was just days away from being sworn-in to serve.

Julia Letlow, a higher education professional, launched her congressional bid Thursday during an interview on KWCL-FM in Oak Grove, La., the same place where her late husband made his congressional announcement in March. "I am running to continue the mission Luke started -- to stand up for our Christian values, to fight for our rural agricultural communities, and to deliver real results to move our state forward," Letlow, R-La., said in an announcement statement.
