NEW ORLEANS - Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were in the New Orleans area Friday evening ahead of the Louisiana presidential preference primary.

Donald Trump, the front-runner for the GOP talked about the problems he says the country faces including the military, health care, and education.

" We can't win with our military. We can't win on the borders. We can't win with trade. We can't win with health care," said Trump.

Ted Cruz was scheduled to speak at the Castine Center in Pelican Park, in Mandeville, at 7:30. He didn't take the stage until after 9:30 at night, but plenty of people were still rallying for both candidates.

The Primary is scheduled for Saturday for both the Republicans and the Democrats. You have to be registered to vote with a specific party to place your ballot. The polls will open at 7am Saturday and will close at 8pm.
