Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) announced Tuesday he will run for governor in 2015, a decision many had long expected.
Vitter said he believes he can have a bigger impact on the state from a perch in the governor’s mansion rather than his current Senate seat.
“After much thought, prayer and discussion with Wendy and our children I have decided to run for governor of Louisiana in 2015,” he said in a video announcing his run on his new website.
He added: “I believe as our next governor, I can have a bigger impact addressing the unique challenges and opportunities we face in Louisiana.”
Vitter said an active campaign for governor is a year away. But he would begin by listening to voters. He touted the amount of town halls he has held as a senator.
