2023 Gubernatorial Race Speculation Continues

There’s still much speculation since our last gubernatorial update. Two major candidates who might join the Louisiana governor’s race said they still aren’t ready to announce whether they are launching a campaign; however, Louisiana Transportation Secretary Shawn Wilson, a Democrat, is rumored to be stepping down from the top position at DOTD and is expected to officially announce his candidacy this month. Two-term incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards is term-limited and can't run again.  U.S. Rep. Garret Graves, R-Baton Rouge, said he hasn’t made up his mind yet over whether he will run for governor, but he recently met privately with Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Jeff Landry (at Landry’s request). According to LA Politics, Graves “mainly wanted to be very transparent about a few issues and establish clarity between them. Both would agree it was a positive meeting.” Read more here.
