BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - President-elect Donald Trump was in Baton Rouge as part of the Get-Out-the-Vote rally for Louisiana Republicans candidates ahead of Saturday's elections.

The Secret Service will be affecting some streets around the airport for the president-elect's visit. Airport officials said those needing to fly out of Baton Rouge or are meeting someone flying in should arrive at the airport an hour or more early.
The invited officials include: Treasurer John Kennedy, Senator David Vitter, Senator Bill Cassidy, Attorney General Jeff Landry, Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser, Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain, Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon, Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Congressman Ralph Abraham, Congressman Charles Boustany, Congressman John Fleming, Congressman Garret Graves, State Senator Bodi White, and Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence was in New Orleans last weekend to stump for candidate John Kennedy. Trump, meanwhile, tweeted out his support for Kennedy on Saturday.
This was Trump's third visit to the Capital City this year. Back in February, he campaigned at the River Center, generating a record-breaking crowd.
He also toured the flood zone after August's historic flood.
