Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards won reelection and delivered a blow to a GOP candidate President Donald Trump hyped before the Saturday election.
Edwards, a Democrat, beat businessman Eddie Rispone 51.3% to 48.7%, according to The Associated Press. Rispone aligned himself with Trump and his policies, while the president made trips to Louisiana to boost the Baton Rouge businessman’s pedigree ahead of the election.
Rispone’s defeat comes shortly after another Trump-backed candidate saw a similar fate. (RELATED: Kentucky Race Too Close To Call: Beshear Claims Victory, Bevin Has Not Conceded)
