I am sure the Louisiana voters are all torn up over Governor Bobby Jindal's statement that he will not enter the US Senate Race. Jindal made the statement on Monday when he appeared before the Baton Rouge Press Club. Not that there is much room for him to run, given that the Republicann field is getting busier every day and with the state political class waiting for Treasurer John Kennedy to enter the field.
Jindal also said he did not have any plans yet when he returns to the private sector.
Of course, one might want to ask if, after he leaves office, will he start campaigning for a GOP candidate for President, so, he could get a national job. Of course, he would be doing this all on his own dime and perhaps, cash he still has in his political accounts.
