Daniel….. Louisiana Senate: Vitter still comfortably ahead of Melancon; Now leads him by 16 Points……

Hello Dog!

According to a new Statewide Survey in the Bayou State Junior Senator David Vitter (R-LA) is still comfortably ahead over U. S. Rep. Charles J. “Charlie Melancon (D-LA). Vitter now leads the Congressman by 16 Points.

Vitter like North Carolina’s Richard Burr (R-NC) was once considered as Prime-Time Target by Democrats because of his Scandal in 2005.

Running this year in a very favorable Environment for Republicans helps him a lot.
