Edwards calls Vitter "a liar and a cheat", and of his ads featuring Vitter's prostitutes dalliances: "If it's a low blow, it's only because that's where you live, Senator."

Good to see Edwards isn't holding back on the low-life that is David Vitter.

The first gubernat­ori­al run­off de­bate between Sen. Dav­id Vit­ter (R-LA) and state Rep. John Bel Ed­wards (D) turned in­to a bare knuckle brawl as it wound down last night.

Ed­wards de­fen­ded his con­tro­ver­sial ad which al­leged Vit­ter put “pros­ti­tutes over pat­ri­ots,” say­ing: “With re­spect to the neg­at­ive ad, if it’s a low blow it’s only be­cause that’s where you live Sen­at­or. … It’s 100 per­cent truth­ful. The fact of the mat­ter – you didn’t say it was un­true. You want me to take it down be­cause you don’t like it. I un­der­stand that you don’t like it. It hits you where you live.”
