The Louisiana secretary of state's appearance at President Donald Trump's rally is raising questions about whether he's run afoul of state law barring the chief elections official from most political activity.

Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin appeared last week at Trump's Monroe rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone. Ardoin, a Republican, is running against Democrat Gwen Collins-Greenup in Saturday's runoff election.

Louisiana has one statewide position on the ballot Tuesday, a special election to fill a secretary of state seat vacated because of a sexual harassment scandal, but the crowded primary competition has lacked the attention-grabbing nature of other states' races around the country.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Political donors aren't breaking out their checkbooks in Louisiana's secretary of state race.

Most contenders for the job in the Nov. 6 special election have limited dollars to get their messages out in the final weeks of a race that has drawn little interest from campaign contributors or voters, even though it's the only statewide competition on the ballot.
