BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District race stretches from Monroe all the way down to the nearby Florida parishes.

Incumbent Republican Julia Letlow was re-elected Tuesday after facing off against four challenges to keep her spot in Washington D.C. 

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to continue representing the people of the Fifth District for the next two years. As I’ve said from the beginning, this is not my seat, it belongs to the people, and I’m blessed by the overwhelming support that we received in all 24 parishes. When I first ran for Congress, I talked about finding hope after a tragic loss, and this campaign was about how we put that hope into action. I believe that the best days are ahead for our district, our state, and our country. I’m ready to return to Washington and begin working with my Republican colleagues to put forward solutions to our most pressing challenges.”
