Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) has finally entered into the race for President. On Wednesday evening the Governor finally made it official when he announced his decision before a crowd at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, Louisiana. The decision wasn’t a surprise, as Jindal has long been rumored to be entering the race, and he’s been operating as a candidate for months. In fact, the surprise may well be that it’s taken him this long to jump into the race at all. At this point Jindal is so far back in the pack that it may well be impossible for him to overcome the deficit.
Jindal is a great candidate – he’s brilliant, he’s a solid conservative, he’s been both a Congressman and a Governor and has extensive experience in running both state and national healthcare systems. But alas, it doesn’t seem like this is to be perhaps Jindal just missed his window?
Whatever the case Jindal is in now, you can see his speech below and also read a full transcript.
