Last night, elections were called in Kentucky and Virginia in favor of Democrats, both of which were Trump-lead states in the November 2016 election,
President Trump won in both of these states by significant margins in the last presidential race, so this could signify a shift in party domination nationwide, and could be a predictor for how Louisiana’s runoff for Governor may turn out next week.
Similar to the rally held in Lake Charles prior to the primary race for governor, the President held a rally in Kentucky alongside incumbent republican governor, Matt Bevin who lost the race for governor Tuesday night. President Trump spoke about how if Bevin lost, it would send a “bad message” for his own campaign.
"You're sending a big message to the rest of the country, it's so important. You gotta get your friends, you gotta vote, because if you lose, it sends a really bad message," Trump said. "If you lose, they're gonna say, 'Trump suffered the greatest loss in the history of the world.' You can't let that happen to me!"
The president will be heading to Monroe today in hopes of boosting the republican candidate for Governor in Louisiana, Eddie Rispone.
This week marks the start of Early Voting for the Runoff Race for governor, and Incumbent Democrat John Bel Edwards and Republican challenger Eddie Rispone went head-to-head on-air for the last time in the final debate last Wednesday.
Political experts and viewers took to Twitter to criticize the two candidates for failing to use this final chance to give the public a clear answer as to what they’d do in office, and for spending most of the debate talking over each other.
One thing that both candidates were clear about, however, is that they have strong morals and family values.
Early voting for the runoff between the two will be going on until November 9, and the polls will officially open for the race on Election day, November 16.
