"I like Bobby, I respect his leadership, I agree with all of his political values. But I haven't thought about what I would do or wouldn't do personally," Vitter said "I do think he’ll run. I think he’s been running. And I think he'll be a meaningful and significant candidate."
Vitter said he would expect to decide next month whether he will seek the governor's offic
