I will post these two stories without much comment, except to note that former state Supreme Court Justice Chet Traylor is a solid conservative with a history of top support both from business leaders and from the Christian Coalition. Stories are here and here. National conservatives and Republicans would be foolish if they pay no attention to this. James Carville is sitting down there in New Orleans, ready to pounce.
Anyway, Republicans in Louisiana now have a real choice after all. That’s all anyone could ask. That was the goal of my column. If they still choose David Vitter, that’s how it goes. If so, more power to him and to the cause of a more conservative Senate.
