Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards wins re-election, dealing blow to Trump


Louisiana's Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards won re-election on Saturday night, dealing another blow to President Donald Trump after the president visited the state three times in five weeks in support of Republican candidate Eddie Rispone. Louisiana is the second reliably red state to elect a Democratic governor this month. Kentucky elected Attorney General Andy Beshear over incumbent Matt Bevin.
