SHREVEPORT, La. (WAFB) - As he’s done each time the president has visited Louisiana recently, Governor John Bel Edwards also held his own rally Thursday, Nov. 14 in Shreveport.
WAFB caught up with Edwards before he left Baton Rouge Thursday morning. The governor said the campaign has not hurt his relationship with the president, who has invited Edwards to the White House nine different times. He said that good relationship will be important moving forward, if he’s reelected.
“That good working relationship will resume going forward. I think it’s important that the governor of Louisiana have a good working relationship with the president, regardless of party," Edwards said.
