This is Why David Vitter Lost: Gutter Politics from a Prostitute-Procuring Politician
Don’t Work Against a Conservative Democrat from West Point

First Bobby Jindal, now Vitter. Two Louisiana conservatives suffer career defeats.
Vitter badly analyzed his race

Based on earlier, successful campaigns, Vitter assumed he would easily win so long as he faced

a Democrat in Saturday’s runoff (Louisiana has an open election system in which Democrats and

Republicans are on the same ballot in a non-partisan primary). As he hoped, Vitter got Edwards

as his runoff opponent, after he savagely attacked and eliminated his two Republican opponents.

.

Vitter’s experience told him that from there, victory was a simple matter of raising as much money

as possible and using it to run spots attacking Edwards as an Obama clone. As he had done in the past,

Vitter planned to make the election a simple referendum on Obama. Based upon his easy victory in 2010,

Vitter also likely assumed that his prostitution scandal was no longer an issue.

.

If that’s what Vitter thought about this governor’s race (and all the available evidence suggests that he did),

he badly miscalculated.

.

Hard as he tried this election, he never made the race about Obama. Instead, to his dismay, the campaign

became a referendum on Vitter – his judgment, ethics and character. The prostitution scandal that Vitter

assumed was resolved became, instead, a central theme of the race.
.

At every turn, Vitter’s assumptions about the race proved incorrect. Relying on experience – fighting the only

way he knew – Vitter waged the wrong war, using the wrong strategy and the wrong tactics.
