Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), the staunch social conservative who was implicated in a prostitution scandal and admitted to a “serious sin,” could be facing a challenge in the Republican primary from Louisiana Secretary of State Jay Dardenne. But before he gets in the race, Dardenne wants to conduct a poll — which would involve forming an exploratory committee.
Dardenne told the Baton Rouge Advocate that he’s considering having a poll conducted. “I’ve had a lot of people suggest that I do that. I’d have to raise some money. I may do that,” said Dardenne. He added: “A lot of people have suggested that’s a step that should be taken before making a final decision.”
