Louisiana's Democratic governor wins re-election in Republican-leaning state - media
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, a conservative Democrat, has won re-election to a second term, according to media reports, narrowly defeating a Republican opponent who had tightly aligned himself with U.S. President Donald Trump.
Trump traveled to the state three times to support Republican businessman Eddie Rispone and repeatedly supported the candidate on Twitter. The Associated Press called the election for Edwards late on Saturday evening.
