In last night’s Louisiana Gubernatorial Election, Gov. John Bel Edwards and businessman Eddie Rispone together defeated Christian Medicine Man and Civil Air Patrol Legislative Squadron commander Ralph Lee Abraham.
Edwards received 626,000 votes, 46.6% of the total cast.
Rispone received 368,318 votes, 27.4% of the total cast.
Abraham received 317,115 votes, 23.6% of the total cast.
Gov. Edwards is a graduate of West Point and one of the few Democratic governors in the South. Because Edwards received less than 50% of the vote, he and Rispone now advance to the runoff election scheduled for November 16th. Reports from the GOP rally in Louisiana with Ralph Abraham and Donald Trump revealed a father teaching his toddler how to ignorantly boo the Fourth Estate so that evidence of crime uncovered by that institution will be discounted by the public in President Trump’s favor.
Abraham’s loss leaves some of his supporters wondering why God would abandon him, others seem to know.
