December 05, 2022 4:09 PM | Chelsey Blakenship (Administrator)

After Republican Attorney General Jeff Landry officially launched his gubernatorial campaign last month, Senator John Kennedy announced that he may consider running for Louisiana’s top office. The federal mid-term election results,  AG Landry and Senator Kennedy’s announcement have changed the course of one of the Republican names that previously considered a run, and delayed announcements for other Republican officials who earlier mentioned their consideration.

  • U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy stated that he won’t jump into the 2023 governor's race, choosing instead to leverage his growing seniority in the U.S. Senate.
  • Republican Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser, who has been considered likely to run, stated that Senator Kennedy’s decision "will absolutely make a difference in my decision.” Nungesser will launch a poll on December 10th and will make final decision by January 10, 2023.
  • Treasurer John Schroder said that he will make his final decision of whether he will run for Governor by January 12, 2023.
  • Some early names brought up to run on a Democratic gubernatorial ticket include Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) Shawn Wilson and former Congressman Cedric Richmond.
  • Qualifying for state races begins on August 8, 2023.
