Laura Ingraham hosted Senator David Vitter of Louisiana.
Vitter said he is running for governor of Louisiana, although there will be several significant candidates that could challenge him.
Vitter said the moratorium on drilling after the BP disaster, but that job creation has been hampered by too many regulations.
Vitter said the Democrats will grab any opportunity to go after Republicans, such as Mike Huckabee's comments on birth control and women's libidos. Ingraham said the issue should be turned around with the GOP confronting the Democrats on their record.
Vitter said he doesn't know Governor Christie, but agreed with Ingraham that others shouldn't have outsiders determine their candidates and that because Christie is strong, the Democrats have to take him down.
Vitter said that while it is important to unite the party and that isn't done by ignoring the base and that the party should unite behind core principles. Ingraham said Speaker Boehner shouldn't give President Obama a big victory on immigration.
Vitter said he will run on his record and has never been a part of the GOP establishment.
