Trump to Rally Republicans in Louisiana Friday Ahead of Primary

By    |   Sunday, 06 October 2019 05:14 PM

President Donald Trump will be in Lake Charles Friday to hold rallies for two Republican candidates ahead of the Louisiana governor’s primary election.

"Going to Louisiana on Friday night for a big Republican Rally. Keep Democrat Governor Edwards under 50%, force a runoff, and have a great new Republican Governor! Voting on Saturday. Information for Rally to follow,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

The White House said in an email the event will be at 7 p.m. at the James E. Sudduth Coliseum.

Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, is running for re-election. Republicans Ralph Abraham and Eddie Rispone are attempting to replace him.

A runoff will be triggered if no candidate achieves a simple majority per the state’s jungle primary system.

Both Republicans welcomed Trump’s visit.

"I'm excited to welcome my friend President @realDonaldTrump to Louisiana," Abraham tweeted. "In Congress, I've worked with our wonderful President to Make America Great Again. I can't wait to work with him as the next Governor of Louisiana."

"Thank you @realdonaldtrump!," Rispone tweeted. "Look forward to welcoming you to LA. @JohnBelforLA and the #donothingdemocrats have focused on opposing Trump every step of the way. As governor, I’ll work with him to make Louisiana great again!"
