Eddie Rispone made his first stop on his statewide early vote tour at Baton Rouge City Hall Monday as the countdown has already begun until the runoff.
Rispone will make a total of six stops around the state which includes New Orleans, Lake Charles, Alexandria, Lafayette, and Shreveport.
Since the October 12th primary election, Rispone hit the ground running in hopes to win the runoff election.
He faced off in a heated exchange against incumbent Governor John Bel Edwards during the latest gubernatorial debate.
Over the weekend, several ads and mailings were distributed comparing Trump and Rispone to David Duke. Rispone says the comments were demeaning.
That’s how low they would stoop to win this race. It’s incredible. They’re running those ads on radio, they’re doing push cards. Its disgusting. The governor has to answer for that.
Rispone says what he brings to the table is something different in a political position than the regular status quo.
We need a leader to turn this state around. We need a CEO of a $30 billion operation. We don’t need a liberal trial lawyer to be the CEO of a state with a $30 billion dollar operation.
Vice President Mike Pence arrived in the Captial City to help the governor’s Republican challenger on the campaign trail.
We want to get people fired up to go out and vote. Vote early. Support our President and support me so we can turn our state around, so we can do for Louisiana what he has done for the nation.
If elected, he wants to bring change in car insurance costs, education, and create more jobs for the state.
Rispone hopes to win over more voters through today’s tour before the runoff on November 16th.
