Trump tests his electoral power in Louisiana governor's fight

Bossier City: US President Donald Trump campaigned on Thursday for the Republican challenger in the Louisiana governor's race, in what is seen as a test of his own political vitality as he battles an impeachment inquiry.

Addressing a rally in Bossier City, Trump urged a crowd of thousands whose votes he will depend on for his own re-election bid next year to "send a message" by electing Republican Eddie Rispone on Saturday.

Worried Republicans have reportedly poured money into the state in the final days of the gubernatorial campaign as polls show Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards poised for a narrow win, despite Louisiana being a solidly conservative state.
