Trump casts Louisiana vote as impeachment referendum (Fox News link): President Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail Thursday to stump in Louisiana for the second time in as many weeks, using a raucous rally to mock two U.S. diplomats who raised questions about his dealings with Ukraine at the center of an impeachment inquiry.
Stung by Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's loss last week to Democrat Andy Beshear, Trump is putting considerable emphasis on Louisiana. Republican businessman Eddie Rispone is challenging Democratic incumbent Gov. John Bel Edwards in a Nov. 16 runoff election.
‘You gotta give me a big win please,’ Trump told the crowd. ‘Please.’
Mod: Judging by the result, I'd say Louisiana's voters aren't quite as concerned about Donald's impeachment fate as he is.
Edwards triumphed over Republican businessman Eddie Rispone, who called to concede. The outcome is another major political loss for President Donald Trump, who had held multiple campaign rallies for Rispone.
During his most recent rally, Trump begged the crowd to give him a “big win” in the election.
