Sen. Vitter Easily Wins GOP Nomination in La.

Saturday, 28 Aug 2010 10:39 PM

 

Incumbent Sen. David Vitter has easily won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Louisiana.

Vitter easily defeated two lesser-known candidates in the GOP primary Saturday. His win will likely set up what is expected to be a nasty general election fight with Democratic U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon (muh-LAWN'-suhn).

Melancon is facing two little-known opponents in the Democratic primary Saturday.

Melancon has already attacked Vitter for his involvement in a prostitution scandal. Vitter admitted in 2007 an unspecified "serious sin" after his phone number appeared in the records of a Washington prostitution ring.
