Campaign mail piece from anti-Vitter group talks to voters
BATON ROUGE - A group running a campaign against Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter in the Louisiana governor's race is turning his former rivals' words against him, literally.
Gumbo PAC, which is supporting Democratic state Rep. John Bel Edwards, has sent a campaign mail piece to voters attacking Vitter through criticisms from unsuccessful Republican candidates Scott Angelle and Jay Dardenne.
When the mailer is opened, it works like one of those birthday cards that play music, only the sound clips are from Angelle and Dardenne at prior gubernatorial debates. The clips include Angelle saying a "stench" will cover Louisiana if Vitter is elected and Dardenne describing Vitter as "vicious."
Dardenne has endorsed Edwards. Angelle hasn't endorsed in the runoff.
Gumbo PAC's efforts for Saturday's election are primarily financed by the Democratic Governors Association.
