That would be Congressman John Fleming talking about Sen. David Vitter.

Louisiana Congressman John Fleming, who last October following the shutdown of the federal government vowed to shut 'er down again in 2014, tells a north Louisiana radio station that his buddy Sen. David Vitter, who with Senate colleague Ted Cruz led the charge to shut down the federal government, has "all but announced" he will run for governor in 2015.
