As early voting begins, U.S. Senate candidate retired Lt. Colonel Rob Maness is heading to Acadiana on Tuesday for an early voting rally.

That's just one of the events Maness will be attending today. First, he'll stop in St. Martinville around 10:00 a.m. to tour Sweet Southern Ladies Designer Cakes on 1299 Loreauville Highway and discuss challenges for small businesses.

Next, Maness will attend the early voting rally at Parc Sans Souci in Lafayette to speak with supporters.

Then, Maness will wrap up his day in Acadiana by heading out to Sulphur to speak at The Mayor's Armed Services Committee Banquet. That event will happen at 5:00 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus on 923 Tana Street.
