Vitter Gets Unexpected Challenger

A dozen candidates have filed to challenge Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), "including an outspoken former sheriff whose independent challenge could rob Vitter of conservative votes in the fall," the AP reports.

Ernest Wooton unexpectedly entered the Senate race and quit the Republican party, "bypassing the primaries to directly face Vitter on Nov. 2 as an independent. Separately, a little-known Republican also registered by Friday's deadline to force Vitter into an August primary."
