Trump Celebrates Runoff For Dem Louisiana Governor

Axios reports:

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) was forced into a runoff Saturday night after winning 47% of the vote in a tight gubernatorial race, results show. Edwards stood out as a rare Democratic governor in “Deep South Trump territory.”

His failure to win 50% of the vote outright over 5 challengers, including 2 Republicans, brings into question his chances of re-election. He’s facing an intense national Republican campaign, spearheaded by President Trump.

Trump rallied against Edwards in Louisiana on the eve of the election, calling on voters to cast their ballots for one of the Republican candidates, without naming either of them.
