If you’re on Governor Bobby Jindal’s e-mail list, you got the first fundraising e-mail of the Bobby Jindal for President campaign. No, he didn’t wait for the end of the 2015 Legislative Session to ask for your money.
Here’s the e-mail:
My wife Supriya and I have been thinking and praying about whether to run for President. We’ll make a final decision sometime in June, once our legislative session is over here in Louisiana.
Some folks who are talking about running for President seem only to be interested in which consultants they can hire or what the latest polls are saying.
I’ve been spending my time thinking about what the next President needs to actually do in office.
President Obama has started to redefine the American Dream, turning it into a European Nightmare of government dependency. But it’s not too late.
As honorary chairman of America Next, I’ve published detailed plans to repeal and replace Obamacare, rebuild our national defense, make America energy independent, and reform education for our children.
P.S. One supporter from Florida made a contribution of only $5 yesterday, just to tell me that she had my back. Will you join with her and do the same?
There it is folks, Louisiana will be represented in the 2016 Presidential race. But I think we already knew that for some time.
One of the tragedies of Bobby Jindal is that he’s obviously a very intelligent man who could offer a lot to the country. If Jindal’s tenure in Louisiana was ending in triumph instead of a whimper, he could’ve been a top tier candidate. Not to mention this state would be much better off now.
However, Jindal’s biggest problem was that he was never truly as engaged in his job as Governor of Louisiana as he should’ve been. His eyes were always on the bigger prize of the White House. Ironically, if he had taken care of business here at home, he would be a much stronger contender coming out of the game.
Let’s see how far Bobby goes in this race.
