Candidates make push to polls
BATON ROUGE - Candidates for both the 6th District Congressional race and the Senate race canvased Louisiana Wednesday in a bid to gather more voters before the polls open on Saturday.
Mary Landrieu spent her day in New Roads asking supporters to vote against her opponent Bill Cassidy and to focus on her record of helping Louisiana.
"My record stands independently, building levees, restoring our coast, creating jobs, leading the energy renaissance," said Landrieu.
In Livingston Parish, Garret Graves sidled alongside reality TV personality Josh Duggar and asked voters to focus on his conservative values as he runs for his first chance at elected office.
"There's stark contrast in our values and we're here to represent the people of Louisiana, we're here to represent the values of Louisiana and I think that's what distinguishes our campaign from Mr. Edwards campaign and we're really looking forward to getting people's votes and representing them in Washington," said Graves.
Congressman Cassidy's campaign holds a rally this evening in Shreveport, though Cassidy is not scheduled to be there and former governor Edwin Edwards spent his day campaigning on the radio.
