If you live in Louisiana’s 2nd or 5th Districts, you have five days to familiarize yourself with the candidates before polls open. Election Day, March 20th, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
In the 2nd District, Claston Bernard is hoping against odds to flip a Congressional seat that has historically been held by the Democrats. Bernard, a Jamaican immigrant and recent Olympic + LSU standout athlete, is a Christian and a conservative whose platform focuses on freedom, faith, and family.
In the 5th District, several Republicans are also vying to keep control of the typically Republican seat that was left vacant with the untimely passing of Congressman-elect Luke Letlow. His wife, Julia Letlow, scored a significant endorsement this week…
Also on the ballot are open seats for the Court of Appeals, BESE, and outgoing State Rep. Charles Henry's seat, among others.

Mississippi has just become the next state to block biological men from competing as women against other female athletes in public schools. This move, endorsed by the state’s legislature and governor, protects girls from the efforts of some within transgender movement to blur the lines between male and female, and by extension, law and policy.
“I never imagined dealing with this, but POTUS left us no choice,” tweeted Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves. “One of [Biden's] first acts was to sign an Executive Order encouraging transgenderism in children. So today, I proudly signed the Mississippi Fairness Act to ensure young girls are not forced to compete against biological males.”
With this move, Mississippi joins Idaho in the list of states who have enacted similar actions. South Dakota is also expected to join soon. Lawmakers in Louisiana are planning a similar effort to prevent radicals from erasing women and girls!
LFF’s intensive civic leadership training program, the Leadership Academy, is starting to fill up. For young adults ages 16-22, this Academy teaches the biblical, historical, and constitutional foundations our nation was founded upon. Attendees learn leadership skills, life-purpose strategies, advanced communication techniques, public speaking skills, counter-culture methods, and a perspective on government that’s biblically based.
Joseph Backholm, Senior Fellow for Biblical Worldview and Strategic Engagement at Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., will be leading this year’s Academy. He combines extensive legal, political, and policy experience with a love for the way biblical truth cultivates human flourishing. Click here to read more about Mr. Backholm.
This year’s event will be held June 6-8 in the Greater Baton Rouge area at the Timothy Retreat Center in Baker, Louisiana. Lodging is onsite and included in the registration fee. Adult counselors will be present at all times. For more information on the Leadership Academy, or for details regarding scholarships, call Louisiana Family Forum at 225-344-8533.
Nickelodeon, a children’s television channel, hosts annually the “Kids Choice Awards” – a ceremony to celebrate the programming and music that kids like most from the previous year. What was once an innocent event, however, has become another grandstand for the left to teach impressionable children about their secular ideas and policies.
This year, actress Jennifer Garner introduced Vice President Kamala Harris, as a “champion for kids,” to speak to the event. Yes, Kamala Harris, the same one who supports abortion up until the moment of birth.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: pay attention to the programming your kids watch on television. What may seem innocent and fun is often now laced with subtle political rhetoric. They’re contending for the hearts and minds of the next generation, and we must push back.
