President Donald Trump returned to Louisiana on Thursday, stumping for Republican gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City.

THE RECAP

Louisiana Republicans are hoping the President’s third visit to the state in a matter of weeks will boost Rispone's chances of unseating Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards.

The President didn’t take long to take shots at the Governor, calling him a tax and spend liberal and a tool of Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.

The President also criticized high auto insurance rates in the state and the economy under Gov. Edwards.

Democrat-led impeachment inquiries into the President were also on the top of his mind during the rally, saying the inquiries should end tonight.

“They don't know what to impeach me for,” President Trump stated.

Saturday's race is big for the President, saying he wants to send a message to the country.

“You gotta give me a big win," he said.

The statewide runoff is this Saturday, and we will have full coverage right here on KALB.com

GOV. EDWARDS IN SHREVEPORT

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards spoke to his constituents before the rally with campaign volunteers at his Shreveport field office located at 3924 Greenwood Road.

Gov. Edwards maintains the sentiment he is putting Louisiana first by trusting the state’s citizens and personal work ethic to improve education, fix the state’s budget, and create jobs.
