Posted on 12/4/2018 12:43:00 PM.

Governor John Bel Edwards  hopes Senator John Kennedy’s decision to stay out of the 2019 governor’s race and remain in D.C. will give the Senator a new-found focus on his federal responsibilities, instead of using his time to verbally spar with state leaders. Edwards responded to the news as a guest on WWL's Newell Normand show. 

“I wasn’t surprised, I guess I wouldn’t have been surprised ether way. He has a lot of work to do in the Senate if he would just focus his attention there and get it done.”
