Louisiana presidential primary sign-up period begins
BATON ROUGE - Presidential candidates interested in being on Louisiana's March 5 primary ballot have started signing up.
Qualifying for the presidential primary runs from Wednesday through Friday. Candidates either send a representative to qualify them by proxy or mail their paperwork into the Secretary of State's office.
Democrats signing up on Wednesday included Hillary Clinton, Martin O'Malley, Bernie Sanders, Henry Hewes and Willie Wilson.
Republicans who qualified for the ballot were Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rick Santorum and Donald Trump.
One candidate who won't be in Louisiana's March primary is Gov. Bobby Jindal, who ended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination two weeks ago.
Presidential candidates have to pay $1,125 with their paperwork or file a nominating petition with signatures.
