METAIRIE, La. -- David Vitter and his wife Wendy showed up at about 10:15 a.m. in Metairie to vote at the new fire house in the I-10 Service Road in Bonnabel.

“Well I’m not making any predictions, we’re just working hard. We’re here to vote, do our part in terms of Election Day, and then we’re all around this part of the state, all day, sign waving, going door to door. We have an army of volunteers, which is so humbling,” Vitter said. “So we’re just working past 8 p.m.”

Vitter voted in Metaire, but also campaigned in Gretna, Slidell and Covington.

It’s no mystery why he spent most of his day in St. Tammany. It’s Louisiana’s most conservative parish. In early voting, people in St. Tammany turned up in large numbers. A voter’s office in Covington saw more voters than any single office in Louisiana.

In fact, Republicans overall voted disproportionately high across the state in the early voting period.

“That was another indication that conservatives are going to be very active this Election Day, so that was a good sign,” Vitter said. “Because we’re very upset with the direction of the country under President Obama and a very liberal Congress.”

Those early voting numbers certainly could even out, but Vitter heads into the evening the favorite, although without the endorsement of fellow Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal.

“It really doesn’t (bother me), because it doesn’t seem to be any issue about me. He didn’t endorse in any of the big races in Louisiana and chose to focus out of state, so that’s obviously his decision,” Vitter said. “I’m confident we’re getting his vote today, just like I’m confident we’re getting virtually every other conservative’s vote today who’s so concerned about the direction of this country."
