Louisiana has seen little political ad action in the run up to Saturday’s presidential primary.

Just two Republican campaigns have taken to the airwaves in Louisiana markets and only on a relatively small scale, according to an analysis from Center for Public Integrity.

The pro-Marco Rubio Conservative Solutions political action committee has run 18 spots on television in the Lake Charles market, 41 in Lafayette and 29 in New Orleans, based on CPI’s latest overview.

Meanwhile, Ted Cruz’s campaign has run 78 in Shreveport.

CPI’s analysis, which is based on data from ad monitoring service Kantar Media/CMAG, shows no TV ads on the Democratic side or from other Republican candidates still in the race in Louisiana.

Louisiana’s presidential primary is Saturday. Cruz and Rubio have scheduled campaign rallies in Louisiana Friday night, as has Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.
