Porn Star Admits Bid for Senate Sounds 'Ludicrous'

Stormy Daniels, the Louisiana-born porn star considering a run for Senate, admits her political ambitions may seem "ludicrous" but insists she's seriously considering a challenge against incumbent Sen. David Vitter

Daniels, star of such films as "Operating Desert Stormy," started a "listening tour" in Louisiana last month. 

She told FOX News on Sunday that she's still trying gauge whether "this is something that I want to do, if I'm capable of doing it." But she said if she makes her run official, she'll do everything in her power to "make it legit." 

And she suggested the public interest in her candidacy says more about Vitter than it does about her. 

"If I was an outsider looking in, I'd think it sounds ludicrous. It really does," she said. "And I guess the whole thing is that (the public) dislikes David Vitter so much that they think I'm the best person for the job -- then I mean that's kind of scary." 

Vitter, a Republican, took a hit when he confessed in 2007 to "a very serious sin in my past," referring to his link to the so-called D.C. Madam. Vitter's telephone number appeared on the old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, the prostitution ring run in the nation's capital by Deborah Jeane Palfrey. 

Daniels said if nothing else, maybe she'll encourage another candidate to run for Vitter's seat in 2010.
