Jindal back on campaign trail

BATON ROUGE - Governor Bobby Jindal is back on the campaign trail, taking jabs at Hillary Clinton on Twitter Tuesday.

Jindal, who suspended his presidential campaign after the deadly theater shooting in Lafayette last week, criticized Clinton's refusal to take a stance on the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Clinton made the comments while in New Hampshire Tuesday, saying she would not "second-guess" President Barack Obama's pending decision on the pipeline. She said because of her work as secretary of state on the government's review of the pipeline, it wouldn't be right to say whether she'd approve or deny the project.

Jindal announced Friday he would step back from the campaign trail after two people were killed and three injured by a gunman Thursday night at the Grand Theatre in Lafayette. At the time he was polling just over 1 percent with GOP voters.

Jindal's campaign sent out an email Tuesday saying he was headed to New York for a round of interviews after he spent Sunday and Monday mourning the victims of the Lafayette shooting. The governor's official Twitter account also changed Tuesday back to Jindal's campaign logo; it had been replaced last week with a graphic to honor the shooting victims.
