“We gave it a great effort. I would ask that you congratulate both John Bel Edwards and Senator Vitter, on moving forward,” Scott Angelle said, as he conceded the governor’s primary, after coming in third Saturday.
John Bel Edwards, who topped the voting with 40-percent, opened his arms – figuratively and literally – to Angelle and fourth-place finisher, Jay Dardenne.
“I’ve developed a true affection for Jay Dardenne and Scott Angelle. They both ran tremendous races,” Edwards said to his supporters, who cheered in agreement.
