***Live Updates*** Louisiana Jungle Primary: Republicans Try to Unseat Dem Gov

Breitbart Politics 4 days ago

Republicans Eddie Rispone and Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-LA) will try to force a runoff against incumbent Governor John Bel Edwards (D) in Louisiana’s gubernatorial jungle primary on Saturday.  Edwards must get more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff.

President Donald Trump campaigned for Republicans on Friday evening in Louisiana and told a raucous Lake Charles crowd that a Republican will unseat Edwards if the race goes to a runoff.

Polls close at 9 PM ET, about 45 minutes after the monumental Florida-LSU showdown kicks off at Death Valley.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News for live updates of the primary results.
