BATON ROUGE, La. - Gov. Bobby Jindal traveled to Missouri and Texas to raise campaign cash, to add to an account that already tops $9 million for the fall election.
The governor's office said Thursday that Jindal headed to Kansas City, Mo., and Texas City, Texas for fundraisers for his fall re-election bid.
So far, Jindal has no announced challengers. He reported earlier this week that he raised $3.4 million in 2010 for his campaign and has $9.2 million in the bank.

Among his trips were stops in Washington, D.C., New York, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, New Mexico, Florida, Pennsylvania, Missouri, California, Texas, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Georgia and Ohio.
