McAllister to hold special press conference Monday

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. - (KNOE 8 News) - U.S. Representative Vance McAllister has announced a special press conference to be held on Monday, June 30 in Monroe.

After a scandal involving a staffer, Rep. Vance McAllister (R-Swartz) told KNOE he would not be running for re-election this fall, but just a few days later, said he would be keeping his options open. Since then, rumor after rumor - some saying McAllister would run, others that he'd resign -have flooded the 5th District.

At Monday's press conference, Vance McAllister says he will put those rumors to rest, and officially announce whether he will run or not. Monday also marks 50 days out from the qualifying period, and less than 130 days from the election.

The announcement will come at 11:00 am, at the American Legion Hall on Forsythe in Monroe.
