Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell hopes his political future includes a seat in the U.S. Senate. 

Campbell officially kicked off his campaign to replace U.S. Sen. David Vitter, who announced he would not be running for re-election after losing the 2015 gubernatorial election. 

"My heart is with working men and women. I make no apologies. I am a populist. I wear that badge right here very proudly," Campbell said. 

Campbell has been a public service commissioner for 13 years and lost the gubernatorial election against former Gov. Bobby Jindal in 2007.  

He has received an endorsement from Gov. John Bel Edwards.
