The four candidates for Louisiana governor are set to meet in their first forum of the campaign.
Friday's event in Baton Rouge will focus on transportation issues. Louisiana has a $12 billion backlog of road and bridge work, and no clear plan for resolution.
Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne and Senator David Vitter — all Republicans — and Democratic state Representative John Bel Edwards will take part.
The forum is sponsored by the American Council of Engineering Companies.
