Louisiana Postpones Presidential Primary
Louisiana will postpone its presidential primary originally scheduled for April 4.
The state is the first to do so in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Louisiana will push the election to June 20, from the planned date of April 4.
It has also delayed its municipal elections scheduled for May 9 to July 25.
States such as Arizona, Florida, Illinois, and Ohio, which hold primaries on March 17, have so far moved forward with their election events as planned.
