BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — An Alexandria lawmaker who once led the state House Republican delegation has announced he’s running to be chairman of the Louisiana GOP. Rep. Lance Harris said Monday he’ll seek to unseat state Republican Party Chairman Louis Gurvich. Gurvich was elected to the job in 2018. Harris has a short time to campaign. The party leadership election is set for Saturday morning in Baton Rouge. Members of the GOP’s elected governing body, the Republican State Central Committee, choose the chairman. Harris said if elected, he would be focused on the statewide elections in 2023, particularly retaking the governor’s seat. Democrat John Bel Edwards is term-limited and can’t run for reelection.
