Rep. Blake Miguez of New Iberia has been elected as Chairman of the Republican Delegation of the Louisiana House of Representatives, replacing outgoing Chairman Lance Harris. He was elected by a vote of 49-15.

"I am honored to be elected by House members as their leader of the House Republican Legislative Delegation," says Miguez. "I want to thank Rep. Harris for his years of previous leadership to our delegation. In this new leadership role, I will work hard along with my House colleagues to develop conservative solutions that bring prosperity to Louisiana. At 68 members and a near super-majority, Republicans have a voice that is stronger than ever in the House. I am excited at the opportunity to work with this new group of Representatives to make Louisiana a better place for all our families. Together we are ready to face the hard work ahead to ensure that state government truly serves the hard-working taxpayers of Louisiana”
