Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards Wins Re-Election

Texas’ neighbor to the east had a runoff election Saturday.

Governor John Bel Edwards will serve another term after Saturday's election in Louisiana.

He becomes the first Democratic governor to win re-election in the state since the 1970s.

Edwards received more than 51 percent of the vote to defeat Republican challenger Eddie Rispone.

The victory is considered by some to be a blow to President Trump who visited the state three times in recent weeks to support the Republican candidate.
