Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana was confident the president will be in attendance at the game. The White House has not confirmed President Trump's plans. Sen. Cassidy said it's exciting news that the president wants to come visit for the game.
"It shows that he has an interest in your state, it shows that he has an interest in the outcome," Cassidy said. "Already, his policies have benefited Louisiana."
As for who the president will root for, Sen. Cassidy said he expects the president will remain "bipartisan," but...
"I have no doubt in his heart of hearts, he's wearing purple and gold," Sen. Cassidy said.
