U.S. Senator David Vitter is a bold, conservative reformer who is working to solve the most significant problems facing our state and our nation with Louisiana common sense.
Senator Vitter believes that the federal government is too big, too bloated, and too involved in Louisianians’ daily lives, and he’s focused on taking practical, mainstream steps to cut spending, reduce the deficit, and put government back in its proper role.
He is a champion for Louisiana jobs that depend on oil and gas drilling, the leader of a Congressional coalition to secure our borders and stop illegal immigration, and an outspoken fighter for reforming the Army Corps of Engineers to ensure better hurricane and flood protection.
Senator Vitter has fought against Washington bureaucracies that place themselves between patients and their doctors, and against government agencies that destroy jobs by piling burdensome regulations on small businesses. He believes that Washington needs the same common-sense approach that is found around Louisiana kitchen tables.
Senator Vitter was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1999. He was elected to his first term in the Senate in 2004, and overwhelmingly re-elected in 2010.
David and his wife, Wendy, have four children and live in Metairie.
