Three frenetic Trump rallies, Sen. Kennedy's faux poor-boy routine and the Duck Dynasty were apparently not enough to prop up Rispone. https://t.co/9kIHK7Wh2N

Trump-backed candidates have lost before, but that's the biggest personal investment Trump has made in a losing race — two rallies in the last two weeks, three in the last five weeks, a bunch of tweets, and a plea to send an anti-impeachment/pro-Trump message by voting Rispone.

Have to give credit to Edwards/Dems' runoff turnout operation, particularly w/ African-American voters. Compared to the primary, turnout was up…
29% in New Orleans
26% in Shreveport
14% in Baton Rouge (w/ 6 precincts still out)
And just 9% everywhere else. #LAGOV

PLEASE don't overlook this: This fall was the first election where tens of thousands of Louisianans on parole & probation were eligible to vote. (Bipartisan law passed last year.)
The SoS didn't do nearly enough to reach out. But @FIPVOTENOLA did tremendous outreach work.
