Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler will address the Baton Rouge Press Club at noon Monday.
Schedler and House Speaker Jim Tucker face each other on the Oct. 22 primary election ballot. Both are Republicans.
Tucker was invited to attend the meeting but declined.
Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, 320 Third St. downtown. 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.
