The four major candidates for governor signed up Tuesday, on the initial day of qualifying.
David Vitter was first up, greeting the media with a joke about his wife who accompanied him.
“Wendy just signed up to run for Governor.”
Vitter said he was flying back to Washington, as the U.S. Senate was reconvening, and it was noted there’s not another congressional recess until October 12th. When asked if he would be participating in any forums or debates before the October 24th primary, he replied, “Absolutely.”
