Late yesterday Senator David Vitter announced he had been endorsed by Congressman Charles Boustany and Lafayette City Parish President Joey Durel in his run for the Louisiana Governor's seat.

Of the endorsements Vitter said,

It's a real honor, and truly humbling to receive the support of Congressman Charles Boustany and Mayor Joey Durel in Lafayette. I'm proud to stand with both of these great Louisiana leaders to lead our state forward.

In his endorsement Congressman Boustany said,

As a conservative leader in the Senate, David has been relentless in making government smaller, more efficient, and able to truly work for all of us. We need a governor who will bring conservative, results oriented, pragmatic leadership to Baton Rouge. We need David Vitter as our next Governor.

Durel said,

David is one of the most hard-working and accessible representatives I've ever worked with. And he listens. It's common knowledge that if you need something call David Vitter.
