Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal made it official on Wednesday, announcing on his website that he’s running for president, hours before his kickoff event in New Orleans.
“My name is Bobby Jindal and I am running for president of the United States of America,” he wrote at Bobbyjindal.com.
At the very least, you have to admit that just trying to figure out the motivation of some of the Republican candidates is interesting. Jindal’s tenure as governor will be over because of term limits so he seems one of the most likely to be running for a cabinet position in this group. With his entry into the race, social conservatives certainly can’t complain about being under-represented.
Again, I say the more, the merrier, if only to keep the MSM so busy that they’re stretched thin when trying to coordinate anti-Republican bias. The current GOP field also provides a nice photo-op to contrast real diversity with the white-out going on with the Democrats.
