(opens in new window)

The presidential primary elections in Louisiana slated for April will be delayed by two months, the latest in a series of dramatic steps government leaders have taken to slow the spread of the new coronavirus.

Sec. of State Kyle Ardoin was set to announce the delay at 11:30 a.m. Friday, using a provision of state law that allows him to move any election in an emergency situation.
