Political Action Committee Formed For Jindal

By  | 

Naw, he’s not running for President.

No, not at all.

From The Times-Picayune:

A group of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s political supporters, including an uncle of the governor’s wife, Supriya Jindal, are forming a federal political action committee to support a presidential run by the 38-year-old Republican.

The governor is aware of the operations of Jindal For President Draft Council Inc., but is not directly involved, according to organizers Rama Mohanty, a Southern University professor, and Dan Kyle, a former legislative auditor and failed GOP candidate in several bids for office.

“They are supportive of what we are doing,” Mohanty said of the Jindal team.

But, as mentioned in the article, I think Jindal has his eye more on 2016 than 2012. The field is too crowded in 2012 and he’s simply too young. Best to let Romney, Palin and Huckabee fight it out and then position yourself as the conservative Obama once Obama is out of office.
