f you thought there werent any major elections until the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3, guess again. On Saturday, Louisiana will choose between incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards and Republican businessman Eddie Rispone for governor. And the race down in the Bayou looks increasingly close, so its an open question whether Edwards can once again overcome Louisianas deep red hue to win reelection. Heres where things stand heading into Election Day.

KY elected a governor who was the son of a very popular Governor. Not as bad as it looked imo.
You know the old saying...you get what you vote for. Our country is in crisis and voters across the country do not have a clue. I am over the hill and and probably will not be here when this great country changes for the worse...turning into an Orwellian monster, with Big Brother calling every shot!!!
But...I am sad and crying inside...seeing what is coming for our families, friends and loved ones. I have traveled all over God’s world and I know the terror and turmoil that is out there!!! The question will be asked by many in this great country...How could we let this happen? Well...you now know the answer!!!
Still, I’m disappointed Trump couldn’t pull Risponse through all that.
R-Secretary of State won by 300,000 votes...yeesh....candidates matter...
Note this. Both Kentucky and Louisiana are odd states electorally. They tend to be conservative in national elections and state elections are not reflective of that. Thus results reflect that. The President could only have helped both candidates for governor by energizing desired voters but not enough to change the local nature of state elections. Success of down ballot Republicans tends to show how odd these states are as well as how lacking the candidates for governor in both states were. Take heart the coming 2020 should be dominated by national concerns. Both states are the Presidents for sure. Also do not let the national media feed you the BS of this is bad for the President.
Need a recount for sure.
Unless there was cheating-entirely possible.
You cant make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
Edwards is the kind of dem who could beat PT next year, but thier bat crazy base will never allow it.
especially Kentucky....Obama lost by 30 points..yet they relected a left wing nut Governor....Beshear’s daddy...very odd...
As far as I can tell, Rispone only did two TV ads since he won a place in the run-off.
He had his cute little wife make one, telling what a nice person he is, and a young woman I saw once telling what a nice guy he is, and some shots of him in hunting clothes.
One out of three voter in Louisiana is black, and they are smart enough to stick together. White voters are too stupid to do anything like that.
Exactly what I was just going to post. WTF?!
Can any FReepers from Louisiana explain what happened?? Voter fraud? Demographics?
So, another weak gop canidate.
I live in Missouri and have some understanding of my states politics. I dont even try to understand Kentucky or Louisiana as far as state politics go. National politics are more easy to comprehend.
Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s not just Louisiana. We were asking the same thing about Alabama, Kentucky, Virgina. Bottom line is GOP sucks and can’t pull a candidate over the finish line.
Either we replace Ronna, get Reince back or I’m very nervous about 2020. Even President Trump can’t do it alone.
There was a priest praying over Edwards (acceptance speech) and then all the baby aborterers on stage with the priest and Edwards crossed themselves and said amen. Truly nauseating, truly sickening.
Hey, we won, lets go abort some more babies! WHEEE!
