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.
“Our momentum is growing and really giving our campaign a boost,” Vitter said. “These are seven very key parishes, and I’m honored and humbled to have the support of the GOP party there.”
Parish Executive Committee Endorsements:
- East Baton Rouge
- St. Bernard
· St. Tammany
Vitter’s opponents have been trying to make inroads in the Shreveport area, but the Caddo endorsement helps shore up Vitter’s support in Northwest Louisiana. Iberia Parish is obviously in PSC Commissioner Scott Angelle’s base, which shows clear signs of weakness for Angelle in his geographical base. Vitter has also received the endorsement of the East Baton Rouge Parish GOP, which is a sign of weakness for Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne in his geographical base.
Vitter has also lined up a strong list of endorsements from most of the Louisiana Congressional Delegation, State Treasurer John Kennedy, Lafayette Parish President/Mayor Joey Durel, and many others.
The National Right to Life Committee, the nation's oldest and largest pro-life organization, has endorsed U.S. Senator David Vitter for election as governor of Louisiana.
