Pence rallies for Kennedy for Louisiana's Senate seat
BATON ROUGE - Vice President-elect Mike Pence urged Louisiana voters to back Republican John Kennedy for Louisiana's open U.S. Senate seat, saying Kennedy would be a strong partner to advance Donald Trump's agenda in Congress.
Pence headlined a New Orleans rally and a fundraiser for Kennedy on Saturday, the final day of early voting for the Dec. 10 election.
Kennedy, Louisiana's state treasurer, faces Democrat Foster Campbell, a state utility regulator, in the runoff for the nation's last undecided Senate seat.
Pence said he and the president-elect support Kennedy "100 percent," describing a Kennedy win as putting "an exclamation point" on GOP victories this year.
Trump and Pence traveled to Louisiana in August to visit with Baton Rouge-area flood victims, a trip Pence recalled as "inspiring to see the resilience of Louisiana."
