BATON ROUGE, La. (KLFY) — U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted out his endorsement of incumbent Sen. Bill Cassidy (R) in his re-election bid for this fall.

“You are doing an outstanding job representing the people of Louisiana & The U.S.A.,” posted Trump on his Twitter account. “You have my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
