Senator Vitter Picks Up a Challenger
And So it Goes in Shreveport ^ | 07/10/2010 | Pat Austin

Via The Dead Pelican, news that Senator David Vitter has picked up a little know Republican challenger for his Senate seat which will force an August primary.

Vitter has been trouncing Democratic challenger Charlie Melancon in the polls.

Nick Accardo, an orthopedic surgeon from Franklin, says:

"He's ineffective as far as really representing Louisiana...We need someone the rest of the Congress holds in better esteem. We need some grown-ups."

Accardo has previously run for the U.S. Senate in 1990 as a Democrat, 1992 as a Democrat and 1996 as an Independent. In 1994 he ran for the House of Representatives as an Independent. He didn't fare too well in any of those races, so I don't think Senator Vitter has too much to worry about.

As of right now, there is no campaign website or Facebook site for him, but we'll keep an eye open and see what his platform is, other than "we need grown-ups".

Don’t think Vitter has anything to worry about.

I wish Vitter would get a true conservative to run against the skunk. Senator Vitter has a fetish for what prostitutes and married to boot???? Why anyone would support a cheater is beyond me. By the way, you cannot be conservative and cheat on your wife. It is impossible. Family values is a priority for conservatives and Vitter FAILED big time. Unfortunately he will win this as Louisiana does not make family values a priority sadly.
