Boustany announces run for US Senate seat

LAFAYETTE, LA (WAFB) - Another candidate is jumping into the US Senate race.

Congressman Dr. Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette, said he'll run for the office in 2016.

He joins retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness, who previously announced his own campaign for the Senate seat.

Both men are hoping to replace US Sen. David Vitter, who has said he won't seek a third term.
