(Newser) – Louisiana Sen. David Vitter has been tied to the DC Madam, but an election challenger with an even more compelling sexual history is deciding whether to get serious in going after his Senate seat. Politico reports that Stormy Daniels, a porn star whose credits include Operation Desert Stormy, is launching a "listening tour" across Louisiana ahead of a possible Senate run in 2010. She's been flirting with a run for a few months, encouraged by fan website DraftStormy.com.

Daniels, who is 29 and not affiliated with a party, is appearing in Baton Rouge tomorrow and New Orleans on Wednesday to "listen to the issues and concerns (people) struggle with everyday." Asked about her motivations, she says "I wanted to take over the world, and I guess senator is a good place to start, right?"
