NEW ORLEANS — An advisor to Stormy Daniels’ potential senatorial campaign had his car blown up yesterday on a street in New Orleans. Political advisor Brian Welch was unharmed.

Surveillance footage broadcast on local news affiliate ABC-26 shows what appears to be a man opening the driver’s-side door, throwing an object in the vehicle and then the car exploding.

“It looks like the pictures you would see in Iraq following a roadside car bombing,” reporter Glynn Boyd said of the damage to Welch’s car.

Having a porn star consider a run for senate certainly is a controversial campaign to be involved in, especially in the Deep South, so Welsh questioned if someone is trying to send him a message, but wouldn’t point fingers so early on.

He’s waiting for more forensic information and hopes witnesses would come forward with more details, but swears this incident will not deter him from continuing to work with Daniels.

“No one has seen anything like this before…not in such a dramatic fashion,” Welsh told ABC-26. “It’s too early for me to go pointing fingers. I’d like to hear officially what happened and then we can take it from there. If someone’s trying to send me a message like this, it’s not going to work.”

Daniels is considering a run for the Louisiana senate seat currently occupied by incumbent Republican David Vitter whose been linked to the “D.C Madam,” Deborah Jeane Palfrey. Vitter's cell phone number turned up numerous times in Palfrey's records.

Daniels has conducted two listening tours of the state and had formed an exploratory committee to research her run before she officially declares her candidacy.
