Congressman Breesus?

For years now, there's been speculation that the New Orleans Saints quarterback might be interested in a post-football career that consists of something besides repping sandwiches for a guy who would do something like this a well-known sandwich chain. TMZ Sports asked Brees this morning about the possibility of a political career, and here's what No. 9 said:
"It won't be the first thing I do. But I'm not gonna rule it out."
That got the notice of 5th District Congressman Ralph Abraham (described by TMZ as "one of Louisiana's most powerful politicians") — enough for him to issue a statement to TMZ:
"Drew Brees led the Saints to a Super Bowl win; he can lead our nation to prosperity," Abraham told TMZ Sports in a statement.

"I’ll even chair his campaign in the 24 parishes I represent."

He added, "In all seriousness, I don’t know what Drew’s politics are, but it doesn’t matter."
Like Abraham, Brees is a registered Republican, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State's voter database,

But who says Candidate Brees would necessarily run in Louisiana? He does, after all, own a house in Del Mar, California, just north of San Diego.
