After nearly a decade in the U.S. Senate, Louisiana's David Vitter — known to most Americans as a former big fan of prostitutes — is ready to leave Washington, D.C. He's got a new destination in mind: Baton Rouge.
Vitter announced on Tuesday that he would be seeking to replace the term-limited incumbent (and possible 2016 presidential aspirant) Bobby Jindal. The outgoing senator marked the occasion by launching a campaign website as well as an online video.
In the video, Vitter implies that he'll be more effective for Louisiana voters as governor than he is as a senator, saying the new position would provide him with "many more tools ... to do things right."
