Traylor was a last minute entrant in the GOP primary, and has been on the offense in recent days, hoping that he can force Vitter into a runoff by repeatedly reminding voters of Vitter's scandal-plagued past. The GOP primary will be held August 28.
Regarding the claim that "a judge found Vitter committed battery on a woman," in the early 90s, Vitter approached a woman questioning him and tried to wrestle her tape recorder away from him. She sued in civil court, alleging assault and battery, and the court awarded her $50. The judge in the case concluded "Having determined that Mr. Vitter, in an excited and agitated state, left the head of the room, walked directly to Ms. Hernandez with his arm outstretched, intending to take hold of the tape recorder, and momentarily touched the recorder and Ms. Hernandez, the Court finds that Mr. Vitter committed a battery upon Ms. Hernandez." The judge also found, "the actual altercation between Ms. Hernandez and Mr. Vitter lasted only a minute or two. Mr. Vitter immediately recovered his composure, reestablished control of the situation, and returned to the head of the room. There is no objective evidence that Ms. Hernandez suffered any actual physical injury whatsoever."
