BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - After months of dodging the talk, U.S. Sen. David Vitter says he's weighing whether he'll run to be Louisiana's next governor, with plans to decide by January.

Vitter tells The Associated Press that he is sending an email to supporters Wednesday, announcing that he and his wife are considering the race for the 2015 election.

The Republican senator said he expects to have a decision after the holidays. Of the governor's race, Vitter said, "This is the logical time to do it, if I'm ever going to do it."

Gov. Bobby Jindal is term-limited.

If Vitter decides to make a bid for the position, he'd be a formidable candidate. His Louisiana approval ratings are high. Other possible GOP contenders have been waiting for Vitter's decision to determine if they'll run.
