With the announcement yesterday by Congressman Charles Boustany that he will seek the Senate seat being vacated by David Vitter, state Senator Elbert Guillory posted this to Facebook this afternoon.

I am deeply honored and humbled by the overwhelming amount of texts, emails and phone calls that I have received since noon today. Your words urging me to run for the Boustany seat in the US Congress have touched me. I will discuss this with my family and pray about it to my Lord. We will make a decision soon. I must say that I was especially touched by the call from a little Cajun grandmother who said that God had sent me to be the voice of the people of South Louisiana. My eyes were damp as I thanked her for her faith and confidence.
