President-elect Donald Trump is imploring Louisiana Republicans to turn out in Saturday’s final U.S. Senate election, urging them to back John Kennedy.
Trump says at a rally in Baton Rouge, “We need John in Washington.” Kennedy is the state treasurer. He faces off Saturday against Democrat Foster Campbell for the seat of retiring Republican Sen. David Vitter.
Polls show Kennedy ahead in the race. Trump says Kennedy would be key to helping him enact his agenda.
Republicans will have a narrow 52-48 Senate majority next year if they hold onto the Louisiana seat.
