Dealing another blow to Donald Trump who had held rallies and campaigned for the Republican nominee who had run on a platform of loyalty to Trump, Democrat John Bel Edwards was re-elected a governor of Louisiana, defeating Eddie Rispone.
I wonder how long it will take before Trump bad mouths Rispone as being a terrible candidate which was why he lost, since nothing is ever Trump’s fault.
Even though Trump campaigned personally in Louisiana and in Kentucky, both red states, and visited them on behalf of the candidates, it was not enough to have Republicans win. In next year’s election, Trump cannot possibly pay that much attention to all the congressional races and Republicans will gave to campaign on their own. This must be making them nervous and it would not surprise me to find even more of them who are in toss-up districts deciding to retire.
