Senator Vitter's Republican fundraising group sets its sights on Democratic state seats they hope to turn to the GOP.

The Louisiana Committee for a Republican Majority has targeted 10 state House seats and four state Senate seats this fall, hoping to boost the Republican majorities in both chambers. The targeted Senate seats are open because of term limits, including the district currently held by the Senate president. But some of the targeted House seats in the Oct. 22 election have first-term Democratic incumbents the group wants to oust.
