Sen. David Vitter has picked up a significant endorsement today in his bid to become the next Governor of Louisiana.  Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has stated in an email sent out from Sen. Vitter’s office that he has endorsed Vitter in that race.  Wordage of the endorsement is as follows:

I am writing to you today to talk to you about my good friend and colleague, David Vitter. Ever since I joined David in the Senate, I have respected his dedication to fighting for the best interest of Louisianans. David and I immediately started working together on issues like balancing the budget, immigration and Auditing the Federal Reserve. We have worked together ever since to represent conservative values in the Senate.

I am honored to tell you that David has chosen to run for governor of the state of Louisiana in 2015. While I will miss his strong conservative voice in the Senate, I know that the people of Louisiana deserve a governor like David Vitter. He is the right choice for governor.

Throughout his time in the Senate, David Vitter has listened to the needs of the people of Louisiana and has been a strong advocate of Louisiana values. I know that he will continue to answer your needs as governor, and this is why I support him as a candidate for Governor of Louisiana.

As a stalwart supporter of limited government, states’ rights, and the taxpayer’s best interest, David Vitter will bring confidence, knowledge, and experience to the governor’s seat. He will advocate for the needs of the people of Louisiana, help the economy grow, and move the state into the future.

Thank you,  
Senator Rand Paul
