Jindal says only other job he wants is president
BATON ROUGE - Governor Bobby Jindal told News 2 today that if he stays in politics after his term is over, it would be to run for president.
Jindal told Michael Marsh Tuesday it was the only other job in politics he wanted. He said he and First Lady Supriya Jindal are praying about the decision.
Jindal has been working to raise his national profile among Republicans. Over the summer he joined national conservative opposition to Common Core and took steps to try and remove it from Louisiana. He traveled to the U. S. - Mexico border to criticize President Barack Obama's immigration record, and has been critical in recent weeks about the administration's response to the Ebola outbreak in Africa.
Jindal made the comments at a press conference to announce the first plans to tap into the WISE Fund, a higher education incentive fund created by lawmakers to spur workforce training.
