No doubt, US Senator David Vitter is winning the money war and the endorsement war. His own campaign and that of his Super PAC, Fund for Louisiana's Future have substantial funds as they have taken to the airwaves in the gubernatorial election.
Today, his press office released the following statement concerning even more support--endorsements:
David Vitter announced a number of key endorsements for his gubernatorial campaign from multiple Republican Parish Executive Committees from across the state.
With Presidential election primary season before us, the world is blabbing about the staying power of Donald Trump, the rise of Carly Fiorina and the other candidates looking for the top spot as the country Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary election approaches.
So, who won the CNN Republican debate Wednesday night, held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley?
After weeks of pressuring from the Republican National Committee (RNC) to sign a “loyalty pledge,” GOP frontrunner Donald Trump finally acquiesced and signed the document on Thursday. Trump announced the decision at a press conference at Trump Tower in New York City after meeting with RNC Chairman Reince Preibus.
From the very beginning of the first GOP presidential debate, Donald Trump was in the spotlightand under fire from Fox News commentators. The first question asked for a show of hands of all candidates who would not pledge to support the Republican presidential nominee. Only Donald Trump raised his hand, which led to the first of many confrontations during the debate. He was challenged by debate moderator Brett Baier and lambasted by Senator Rand Paul for “buying and selling politicians.” While Trump declared that he wants to “run as the Republican nominee,” he is absolutely correct to keep his options open.
The GOP establishment is beyond upset, they are apoplectic. Last month, on the day their favored candidate, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, announced for President, he was immediately overshadowed by Donald Trump, who officially entered the race the next day.

The important Iowa vote
The Republican caucus vote in Iowa can sometimes make or break a candidate's bid for his or her party’s presidential nomination. While it’s not the end-all for candidates, the vote gives an indication of who the front-runners are in the early stages of the campaign.
Today, after the U.S. Supreme Court decided in favor of same sex marriage, GOP presidential candidates, all competing for the religious right vote, released statements.
The Democratic National Committee poked at Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and some of the likely GOP presidential field today after news broke that the technology-giant, IBM, has cancelled its ribbon cutting because of a Bobby Jindal executive order concerning what the Louisiana governor calls protecting religious freedom.
This was a busy week in the GOP presidential sweepstakes as two candidates jumped into the race: U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and former Texas Governor Rick Perry. Currently, there are ten announced candidates running for the Republican presidential nomination and the number will surely grow. In the coming days, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will officially announce his presidential bid. Soon thereafter, Ohio Governor John Kasich, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and business tycoon Donald Trump will probably enter the fray.
A new Pew Research Center poll shows that America is not happy with the GOP-led Congress. In fact, Americans are downright disgusted as Republican congressional leaders only registered a 22% overall approval rating.
