President Donald Trump is heading to Monroe next week, The Advocate reports.

U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham says the president is making a second trip to Louisiana in two months to stump for Abraham's once-rival Eddie Rispone, who is attempting to stop Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards from getting a second term, the newspaper reports.

A Trump spokesman confirmed Thursday that Trump will be in North Louisiana next week, which had been expected in the run-up to the Nov. 16 runoff in the governor's race.

Michael Glassner, chief operating officer of Trump's re-election campaign, said that he plans to highlight the Trump administration's successes for Louisiana.
