President Trump endorses Abraham, Rispone for governor
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to weigh in his thoughts on the Louisiana governor's race.
The president tweeted his endorsement of GOP candidates Congressman Ralph Abraham and Businessman Eddie Rispone over Democratic incumbent Gov. John Bel Edwards.
President Trump said, "REPUBLICANS of Louisiana, it is really important for you to go out and vote on October 12th for either Eddie Rispone or Ralph Abraham (both Great), which will lead to a runoff against a Nancy Pelosi/Chuck Schumer Democrat (John Bel Edwards), who does nothing but stymie all of the things we are doing to Make America Great Again. Don’t be fooled, John Bel Edwards will NEVER be for us. Early voting has already started! @LAGOP."
Congressman Abraham had this to say in response to the president's endorsement:
Rispone tweeted the president back, "Thank you, President Trump. I am proud to say that I have always stood with, President Trump. As your governor, we will do for Louisiana what Donald J. Trump has done for America! #LAGOV.”
