A Louisiana-born porn star says that if she goes through with a run for the U.S. Senate, she'll run as a Republican.

In a Tuesday news release, Stormy Daniels notes that the Republican
National Committee picked up a nearly $2,000 tab at a sex-themed
California nightclub.
Daniels' statement says she was a lifelong Democrat, but that the Republicans best espouse her views about sex and money.

Daniels, whose political spokesman has a history of working for
Democrats, is to announce April 15 whether she will run against
Republican Sen. David Vitter. Democratic Rep. Charlie Melancon is also running. Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, is not currently registered to vote in Louisiana.
