BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — With less than a year to go until Louisiana’s highly anticipated gubernatorial race, the state’s two U.S. senators said they plan to run for governor and plan to announce their decisions soon, possibly within the next few days.

In a routine press call on Tuesday, Republican Senator Bill Cassidy told reporters he was considering the gubernatorial race, had made a decision, and would “make that announcement later this week. “, reports The Advocate. Cassidy’s comment comes a day after the other senator and colleague from Louisiana. Republican John Kennedy made a similar statement.
