LSCU began vetting and supporting many of these state and federal candidates in early 2021 as the 2022 Election Cycle officially commenced. The process included countless individual candidate interviews and meetings, in-district meetings and check presentations, and many more touchpoints before final decisions were made. A sincere “thank you” to all who participated in these candidate and incumbent engagement opportunities.
