    Dem Gov Holds on in Louisiana

    In a rare Saturday election, the Democrat narrowly defeated Trump's man in deep red LA.

    John Bel Edwards: Louisiana's Democratic governor will win reelection, CNN projects - CNNPolitics

    Louisiana Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards will narrowly win reelection, beating out Republican challenger Eddie Rispone, CNN projected Saturday night.

    Edwards will claim victory in a deep red state President Donald Trump won by 20 percentage points in 2016, and against a businessman who closely aligned himself with the President. Trump held two rallies in Louisiana over the past 10 days, but the attempt at a last-minute boost was not enough to carry Rispone over the finish line.


    I wonder when the GOP guys will start telling Trump to stay away. I know I would.

    Actually Edwards is a very conservative Dem.

    Hah! In ruby red LA, too! And after Trump went out on the limb for him this week! There's no fall-back backstory this time like KY, where the GOP can blame it on the candidate. Maybe the tide is a changing, after all.

    Since Trump attained office, 9 statehouses and 41 House districts have flipped. And I believe the number of GOP House retirement announcements is around 18 (and growing!) for 2020. After seeing the Dem suburban surge again in the recent KY election, I'm sure we'll see a few more GOP House retirement announcements early next year from those in similar districts! Good!

    If Trump's plan was to destroy the Republican party, he could hardly be doing a better job.
    Supporting Trump, but claiming you are against racism...is like eating a Banana Split every day, but claiming you are against ice cream.

    He's consolidated and united the party through voter unity to the point of purity, but he also shrunk it around the edges and made it less palatable to the country at large.
