CONCORD, NH - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has made his first New Hampshire hire as he prepares for a presidential bid.

Henry Goodwin, the former communications director for Walt Havenstein's gubernatorial bid, is joining Jindal's new political organization, the American Future Project, as a top communications adviser. He will lead the organization's New Hampshire efforts and help with national communication. Jindal, a second-term governor, will be in New Hampshire next weekend for a cattle call of presidential hopefuls hosted by the New Hampshire Republican Party.

He visited New Hampshire in the fall to campaign with Havenstein.

Most other prominent Republican contenders have already hired at least one staffer to lead their New Hampshire efforts. Jindal also recently hired staffers in Iowa, the first caucus state.
