Bobby Jindal

C-SPAN

It’s been awhile since we checked in on Governor Bobby Jindal’s presidential campaign, so let’s see how it’s going.

Last week he pitched in the minor league game of GOP contenders, on Fox News.

“I won two landslide elections. I made big changes. I think our country is tired of the politicians who simply read the polls and fail to lead,” Jindal said during that debate.

 Jay Dardenne is urging payback from a couple of fellow Republicans.

“David’s got a lot of money in the super PAC. Bobby’s got a lot of money in super PACs and taxpayers of Louisiana ought not be having to fund those efforts. That’s the point I’m really making,” Dardenne said of his call for David Vitter and Bobby Jindal to reimburse the state of Louisiana.

While the candidates for governor are obviously running against each other, they are also running hard against Bobby Jindal and his record. Speaking to the Louisiana Municipal Association on Friday, all four of the top contenders in the governor’s race endeavored to draw a line of difference between themselves and the current governor.


The campaign hiatus is officially over, with Governor Bobby Jindal leaving the state, again. He resumed his chase for the Republican presidential nomination, appearing on three national news shows Wednesday.

“There’ve been 3 different polls in the last week, showing that we’re on the move in Iowa,” Jindal said during his stint on CBS “This Morning”.

In order to deal with the Lafayette shooting tragedy, Governor Bobby Jindal announced last Friday he was suspending his presidential campaign. Jindal’s later response to a reporter’s persistent questioning about gun control policies certainly indicated the campaign was on hold.

“There will be a right time and place to have that conversation,” Jindal told the reporter. “I’m more than happy to talk about this in a few days. Right now is not the time.”

After the Supreme Court's decision effectively legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide came down at 10 a.m. ET, the 2016 hopefuls weighed in quickly.

The Republican side of the field has opposed same-sex marriage, but in responding to Friday's decision, most of the candidates struck a measured tone — many noting they support traditional marriage and religious freedom and disagree with the court — but also stressed the importance of respect and tolerance for all Americans.

It’s time to look at some of the reactions to Bobby Jindal’s official announcement of his presidential run.

Well before he took the stage in Kenner Wednesday, the so-called “spy cam video” was released. In it, Bobby and Supriya tell their kids of the decision to seek the White House.

“Okay, if we move into the White House, you can have a puppy,” Bobby tells daughter Selia.

“Can I pick out the puppy?” she asks.

The video was widely panned, with Newsweek calling it “odd and awkward”, and Rolling Stone describing it as “creepy”.

The road to the White House begins with voters in Iowa, New Hampshire and in a handful of other states that hold primaries and caucuses early that winnow the field of candidates.

But those aren't the only stops on a would-be president's itinerary these days. There are also, increasingly, early trips outside the U.S. — to a city that's become a major draw for potential candidates: London.

Londoners welcome a chance for a sneak peek at possible presidents who are eager to be seen on the world stage.

Rather than attending the Washington, D.C. Mardi Gras festivities, or Iowa’s Freedom Summit for GOP presidential hopefuls, Governor Bobby Jindal courted a base for a possible 2016 presidential run, keynoting both the Louisiana Right to Life March and his own “The Response” prayer rally. The two events were held concurrently on the campus of LSU.


More than two dozen members of the Republican Governors Association gathered this week in Boca Raton, Fla., to talk about policy issues and bask in their success after the recent midterm election.

Under New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's chairmanship, the RGA spent $130 million and achieved remarkable success at the polls: All but two Republican governors running for re-election won. And the GOP even won governors' races in deep blue states like Illinois, Massachusetts and Maryland.
