Stormy Daniels Discusses Possible Senate Run On MSNBC (VIDEO)

Adult film star Stormy Daniels talked with MSNBC's Contessa Brewer on Friday about her possible run to replace Louisiana Senator David Vitter in 2010.

Daniels was recruited to run through an effort called Draft Stormy, which she says she initially discounted as a political stunt by a "group of rogue fans." After realizing the group wasn't a joke, she decided to give the idea some real thought.

"The response was so overwhelmingly positive," she said. "I was getting flooded with email and messages from people wanting to talk to me. People, people saying they really needed me to do this, that they would do whatever it takes to help get David Vitter out of office, and I thought, you know this is obviously a great opportunity for me to get my voice out about the things I really care about."

Daniels told Brewer that her top concerns would be helping the economy of Louisiana and continuing her work to get rid of child pornography online.

Daniels said she realized that not everyone would take her run for office seriously, but that she could have a positive influence on the race regardless.

"You know the less seriously opponents take me, the easier it is for me to sneak up on them," Daniels said. "And maybe it will inspire someone else who is extremely qualified and who is the best person for the state to do the job. Maybe it will encourage that person to step up and run too."

Daniels said she just finished her listening tour and plans to spend the weekend thinking about whether or not she wants to run.
