Meet Luke

Short Bio

Luke Letlow is a 9th generation Louisianian from Richland Parish, Louisiana. He has dedicated his life to public service and has worked to protect rural Louisiana’s way of life.

A lifelong Republican, Luke has worked alongside Congressman Ralph Abraham and President Donald Trump to make sure Washington listens to real people and has helped unleash the Great American Comeback.

Luke has served as Chief of Staff to Congressman Abraham throughout Abraham’s time in Congress. He commuted regularly between Washington and Louisiana, with his primary residence remaining in Louisiana.

Luke is running for Congress to be a conservative voice in Washington who will get results for Louisiana, work to defeat the radical socialists, and keep the economy moving forward.

He enjoys spending time with his family, hunting the blinds of central and north Louisiana, and diving into local and regional history.

Luke attended Start Elementary and Junior High, Ouachita Christian High School, and received a B.S. from Louisiana Tech University in 2003. He is married to Dr. Julia Barnhill Letlow, a University of Louisiana at Monroe graduate, and they are raising their two young children in Start, on the same land where Luke’s great-grandfather once lived and worked on as a tenant-farmer.

They worship at Covenant Presbyterian Church (EPC) in Monroe.

“Luke Letlow knows the 5th Congressional District
better than anyone, and more importantly, he truly
cares about the people of this district - he’s been by
my side since day one. Luke knows how to get the job
done, and he has my full endorsement and support.”
- Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D.
