Two more Republican congressmen from Louisiana — Ralph Abraham, of Alto, and John Fleming, of Minden — have thrown their support in this year’s governor’s race behind U.S. Sen. David Vitter.

Abraham and Fleming’s endorsements were announced in north Louisiana on Wednesday.

Vitter faces Republicans Scott Angelle and Lt. Gov Jay Dardenne, as well as Democratic state Rep. John Bel Edwards in the Oct. 24 election.
