(Baton Rouge, LA) Following the postponement of Louisiana’s Presidential Primary and amid the ongoing spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, the LAGOP has decided to postpone the March 28th Delegate and Alternate Congressional Caucuses.
Out of an abundance of caution, the LAGOP Executive Committee voted unanimously to postpone the Delegate and Alternate Congressional Caucuses until mid-April 2020.
This decision was not taken lightly, but instead with caution and the health of Louisiana Republicans in mind. “With this novel coronavirus continuing to spread rapidly, we felt it was in the best interest of the voters and our party staffers to postpone the Caucuses. We understand the concern and uncertainty everyone is experiencing around the evolving situation, and we're committed to being responsive and flexible,” said LAGOP Chairman Louis Gurvich.
