Julia Letlow, a wonderful and talented person who is the widow of U.S. Representative-elect Luke Letlow, is running for Congress in Louisiana-5 at the urging of so many people who know her so very well,” Trump wrote in a statement released by the Save America political action committee (PAC).

“She is Pro-Life and strong on Crime, the Border, loves our Military, our Vets, and will always protect our cherished Second Amendment. Julia, who is so outstanding, has my Complete and Total Endorsement. The Great State of Louisiana will be thrilled!”

Luke Letlow, 41, passed away in December 2020 from a heart attack, the doctor in charge of the hospital where he was being treated confirmed. The heart attack was “likely related to thromboembolic phenomena caused by COVID-19,” Dr. G. E. Ghali, chancellor of LSU Health Shreveport, told The Epoch Times in an email. COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

“It’s truly an honor to receive President Trump’s endorsement and I look forward to joining in the fight to save our country by putting America first!” Letlow wrote on Twitter after Trump’s endorsement.

Letlow said in January that she felt she should run for the seat that her late husband won last year before he died from what was believed to be COVID-19-related complications.

“I hear him very clearly in my head saying he would be so proud of me as I move forward,” Letlow told on “Fox & Friends” on Jan. 22.

“I am running to continue the mission Luke started—to stand up for our Christian values, to fight for our rural agricultural communities, and to deliver real results to move our state forward,” she said in a statement at the time.

The election will take place on March 20.
