Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has announced he won’t challenge Louisiana Sen. David Vitter in 2010:
“I am grateful for those who’ve encouraged me to consider returning to elected office, but this is not the right time,” wrote Perkins in a letter to state party chairman Roger Villere. “Along those lines, I would like members of the State Central Committee to know that I support Senator David Vitter’s bid for reelection in 2010.”
Vitter has got his share of problems, but now a prominent socially conservative challenger — who once drew 10 percent in an open primary for Senate in Louisiana — isn’t one of them.
