David Vitter and John Bel Edwards waste no time to kick off general election
The two remaining candidates for governor wasted little time launching their campaigns for the Nov. 21 runoff.
State Rep. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat who led in the primary Saturday (Oct. 24), held a next-day news conference he said was meant to set a tone of openness with reporters in the last month of the election. Edwards took questions for about 20 minutes, telling reporters he expects a tough fight with U.S. Sen. David Vitter. Edwards is seeking endorsements from his two former Republican opponents.
