John Bel Edwards, Democratic candidate for Governor of Louisiana, left, visits with state Rep. Patrick Jefferson and state Sen. Rick Gallot during Edward’s Friday stop in Grambling.

The lone Democrat to throw his hat in the Louisiana gubernatorial race has visited Ruston.

John Bel Edwards, of Amite, first made a stop at Lewis Chapel CME in Grambling before visiting with other supporters at Sundown Tavern in Ruston on Friday.
