BATON ROUGE - Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has named his Louisiana steering committee and finance chairs, ahead of the state's March 5 primary. 

Leading the fundraising efforts for the former Florida governor in Louisiana are New Orleans real estate developer, Joe Canizaro, Lockport shipbuilder Boysie Bollinger and Ruston transportation company owner James Davison.

On the Bush steering committee are St. Tammany Parish President Pat Brister, state Sen. Conrad Appel of Metairie, state Rep. Nancy Landry of Lafayette and former state Commissioner of Elections Suzie Terrell. 

Advisers for the Bush campaign in Louisiana are long-time GOP political consultants Jason Hebert and Scott Hobbs.

Louisiana's term-limited governor, Bobby Jindal, ended his bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination last week.
