Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne will address the Baton Rouge Press Club at noon Monday.

Dardenne and Billy Nungesser, who is Plaquemines Parish president, face each other on the Oct. 22 primary election ballot. Both are Republicans. Nungesser was invited to attend and agreed to participate but then canceled citing a scheduling conflict.

Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, 320 Third St. in downtown Baton Rouge. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for non-members.

The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and members of the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
