Rarified club: Louisiana governors to get together Sunday

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Consider it the meeting of one of Louisiana's most exclusive clubs. The state's governors are gathering together this weekend at the house where each once lived.

Gov. John Bel Edwards and first lady Donna Edwards are hosting Louisiana's former chief executives at the governor's mansion Sunday afternoon for a reception called "Memories at the Mansion."

Edwards' office says all five living former governors have confirmed they plan to attend: Edwin Edwards, Buddy Roemer, Mike Foster, Kathleen Blanco and Bobby Jindal. Each also could invite a few former cabinet members and staff.

John Bel Edwards' spokesman Richard Carbo said Friday that Donna Edwards planned the reception as part of her relaunch of the mansion preservation foundation. She's asked the ex-governors to bring memorabilia from their tenures to display in the mansion.
