Maness says he is exploring 2016 run for US Senate

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It looks like retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness will again run for a US Senate seat.

He has filed the appropriate paperwork and said he's exploring a run in 2016.

The election will determine who takes over the US Senate seat currently held by Republican David Vitter.

Vitter has said he won't seek a third term after losing the recent race for governor.

Maness also ran for the US Senate in 2014, but lost that race.
