BATON ROUGE- U.S. Sen. David Vitter is sitting on the largest campaign account in the Louisiana governor's race. And now he's finally pumping some of the money into TV advertising.
    
The Republican candidate launches his first 30-second TV ad Thursday. Campaign spokesman Luke Bolar says the spot will run across the state.
    
The ad contrasts Louisiana's problems of today, with Vitter's promises for improving them. He talks of eliminating waste in state government, expanding skills training for workers and raising public school teacher pay.
    
The election is Oct. 24. Four major candidates are in the race, including Republican Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, Republican Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne and Democratic state Rep. John Bel Edwards.
    
Angelle has run several TV ads, but the others have done little to no advertising so far.
