Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards gained the Louisiana governor’s election on Saturday night after a tightly fought race.

The incumbent confronted a robust problem from Republican Eddie Rispone.

The outcome comes as a blow to President Donald Trump who subsidized his fellow Republican.

On Saturday he posted a number of tweets urging other folks to vote for Mr Rispone.
