The Peripatetic Engineer tells me of a rumor that retired LTG Russ Honore might run against David Vitter in the Republican primary for the US Senate.

I googled it and found an article from the Bayou Buzz.
In a breaking story, The Louisiana Weekly and have learned that the hero of Hurricane recovery, General Russell Honore is seriously considering entering the Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate seat against incumbent David Vitter. Honore, a Republican since the Reagan Administration and a registered Louisiana voter from his Zachary home, has spoken to friends and supporters in the last two weeks signaling that he is, according to one, "more than 50% sure that he will run."
That's interesting.

You might remember General Honore as the general who famously told a reporter, Don't get stuck on stupid." during a post-Katrina news conference.

Honore might be someone I could support.

Yep, HE would be a good one! I'd love to see him get in, that would sure as hell stir the pot in DC!
