In win for Trump. Democratic Louisiana governor faces runoff

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, will face a Republican candidate in a runoff after he failed to get more than 50 percent of the vote in Saturday’s “jungle primary” in his GOP-friendly state.

President Donald Trump rallied on Friday in the state to support the Republican candidates on the eve of the election, calling Edwards “a liberal Democrat who has sold you out.” On Saturday the president tweeted his congratulations, predicting the state would soon have businessman Eddie Rispone as a new governor.
