Edward Lee Rispone, known as Eddie Rispone (born January 21, 1949),[1] a businessman from the capital city of Baton Rouge is one of two Republican gubernatorial candidates seeking to unseat Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, in the 2019 nonpartisan blanket primary election. Also in the race as of December 8, 2018, is U.S. Representative Ralph Abraham of Louisiana's 5th congressional district. Republican state Senator Sharon Hewitt of Slidell in St. Tammany Parish]], a conservative, is a potential gubernatorial candidate.

Rispone is reported prepared to spend at least $5 million from his personal fortune to make the race. Though he lacks broad name recognition statewide, Rispone can take comfort that several previous governors, including John J. McKeithen, Mike Foster, and even John Bel Edwards entered their races in 1963, 1995, and 2015, respectively, without early name recognition. He could use the slogan, "Eddie Is Ready, which was formerly employed by Eddie Sapir, a New Orleans judge and city council member.[2] Journalist Stephen Sabludowsky wrote in analysis:

Might Rispone destroy Louisiana tradition and do a Trump pole-vault over the government-first service pit?

Perhaps. It won’t be easy. First, there will be competition from other Republicans. Also, John Bel Edwards is no pushover. According to Bernie Pinsonat’s recent poll, the current governor enjoys a 60 percent favorable score, despite having served during the worst budgetary meltdowns in decades and despite the other party hovering over, smelling blood.

Nonetheless, Eddie is ready, without government baggage and all.[2]
