Masked mourners filled a Louisiana church to mourn Congressman-elect Luke Letlow — one day before he would have been sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives.

Letlow, 41, died of COVID-19 complications Tuesday when he suffered a heart attack after undergoing an apparently successful operation to remove a blood clot. He had been hospitalized at Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport since Dec. 23 as he battled COVID-19.
