Rubio cancels Baton Rouge visit

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Republican Presidential Candidate Senator Marco Rubio has canceled his visit to Baton Rouge.

Rubio was scheduled to hold a campaign rally on Friday at Galvez Plaza in Downtown Baton Rouge.

According to members of Rubio's campaign, the reason for the cancellation is so that Rubio can focus on Saturday's election.

"In order to use Marco's time as efficiently as possible before Saturday's contests, Marco will not be making a stop in Louisiana Friday night. Campaign activities will continue in the state leading up to Saturday's election, but we regret that Marco cannot be present."
