U. S. Senator David Vitter (R, LA) made a brief stop in Ruston this morning while campaigning for Governor.

Speaking to supporters at the Ruston/Lincoln Chamber of Commerce on North Vienna, Vitter said he was accelerating his campaign, and touted his polling and fundraising.

Said Vitter, “We’re raising money effectively. We have about $4.7 million cash on hand, and that is about the same as all our opponents combined.”

He added, “We have a great lead (in polling), somewhere around 35%. Then the Democrat in the race, John Bel Edwards is around 28%, maybe 30%.

Vitter also promised to be accessible and to avoid “living in a bubble.”

Downsville Mayor Reggie Skains noted that even though Vitter was a South Louisiana Congressman, he always would see him whenever he visited Washington.

Said Skains, “I’ve never – and I’ve frequented his office many times – has he ever failed not to see me.”

    Ah! Now we see. No negative innuendos or critical commentary? No mention of the deadhead class (he did miss a Senate vote to campaign down here – isn’t that his job)? No talk about taxpayer money being used for diapers or the like? Your politics are really showing.

    Nice campaign advertisement. Friend of the common man, my foot!
