BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Senator David Vitter announced today that he’s endorsing Billy Nungesser in the race for Lt. Governor. He did so at a press conference held just after 10 a.m. at Mike Anderson's Restaurant in Baton Rouge.
Nungesser announced his intentions to run for Lt. Governor on June 20, 2011. He says the reason is because current Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne did not do a good enough job during the BP oil spill.
Dardenne responded to Nungesser’s announcement by making note that Nungesser was a supporter of his when he ran for Lt. Governor in 2010.
