OMAHA - Governor Bobby Jindal was in a suburb of this metro area Wednesday, shaking hands and taking pictures with voters.

Jindal and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee were in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Both discussed issues they see as important to voters, especially gay marriage.

"I support federal efforts to define marriage between a man and a woman," Jindal said.

"This happened because of judicial activism and judges usurping the votes of people in more than 30 states," Huckabee said, KMTV reported on its website.

Jindal's comments to reporters Wednesday did not waver from what he has said on campaign stumps across the country recently or to reporters in Baton Rouge. Jindal announced his plans to run for president at an event in the New Orleans area last week and immediately hit the campaign trail.

Meeting with voters outside Omaha, Jindal had sell his policies. One woman asked upon introducing herself to Jindal, "What are you up to?" Amid laughs, the governor replied, "I'm running for president."

"Oh, great," the woman replied with a chuckle. Jindal laughed, too, and continued talking with the elderly woman.

Later, Jindal said he was the only candidate with a solid plan to fix health care and other areas of government.

"Every American says they're against ObamaCare, I'm the only one that's offered a plan to repeal and replace it," he said.
