Gov. John Bel Edwards and businessman Eddie Rispone will meet Wednesday evening for what is likely to be their only debate before Election Day. As such, it may be the last chance voters have to hear directly from the candidates about how they propose to deal with the issues facing Louisiana.

“The governor of Louisiana has immense power, and voters have a right to know what the candidates will do once they are sworn into office,” said Jan Moller, LBP’s executive director.
