BATON ROUGE- Republican candidate for governor Jay Dardenne has started his TV advertising, pitching himself as a nonpartisan, straight talker who will "make Louisiana proud."
    
With the launch of his 30-second spot Tuesday, Dardenne, the state's lieutenant governor, became the last of the four major contenders for governor to begin TV ads.
    
A narrator describes Dardenne as holding elected offices for 25 years without a "hint of scandal," a seeming reference to the prostitution scandal of GOP front-runner, U.S. Sen. David Vitter.
    
The ad comes with fewer than six weeks before the Oct. 24 election.
    
Republican Scott Angelle, a member of the Public Service Commission, has been advertising for months, while Vitter went up in August. Democrat John Bel Edwards, a state representative, started airing his first TV ad over Labor Day.
