The candidates in Louisiana’s gubernatorial race spent their day trying to win over votes.

All four men spoke at the Crown Plaza hotel Saturday morning. Each candidate responded to voter and media questions.

Jay Dardenne said “We’ve got to set priorities and budgeting in state government, and I’ve talked about those priorities: Education, health care, and public safety.”

Democratic nominee John Bel Edwards wants to make sure that funding to state police is consistent.

Scott Angelle said that he wants to break through challenging issues by working across party lines on the first day in office.

David Vitter said Louisiana can see brighter days by “applying strong leadership and real solutions.” Vitter also said that he wants to build a team to address solutions to issues that face the state and not “Kick them down the road.”

The election is set for October 24.
