President Trump Will Visit Shreveport Bossier 2 Days Before Election Day
Our Townsquare Media affiliate KEEL News has confirmed that President Donald Trump is going to Shreveport Bossier next week to stump for Eddie Rispone in the Louisiana Governor's race.
Congressman Mike Johnson confirmed the visit is a go for Thursday, November 14th at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City. Johnson says he expects the event to begin at 7 pm. President Trump spoke with Moon Griffon about that Thursday event (though details weren't finalized at the time of the conversation), as well as tonight's event in Monroe, in an interview earlier today.
We expect the link to get the tickets to the local event to go live either during or after the President's visit to Monroe tonight.
Click here to check for ticket availability. The CenturyLink Center seating capacity is listed as 14,000 (depending on the configuration). In Monroe, 40,000 people have RSVP'd for tonight's event, but the venue will only hold 8,000.
Rispone is in a hotly contested race for the Governor's Office against Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards. Most polls show the two in a neck and neck battle.
