Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne responded to today's announcement by Senator David Vitter (R-LA) that he will seek the office of Governor of the State of Louisiana, saying:
"Senator Vitter's announcement was expected. It is my hope that the governor's race will offer Louisianians the opportunity to compare and contrast the records of all the candidates, as well as the merits of their ideas to keep our state growing.
"I am deeply humbled by the outpouring of support I've received from every corner of Louisiana. Our campaign will focus on detailing the promises I've kept to the people of Louisiana and my positive vision for our state moving forward.
"To that end, we will continue to actively fundraise and share our message with folks across the state."
