Jindal could return to politics as member of Trump's cabinet
BATON ROUGE - Former Governor and presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal's name is being tossed around as a possible Health and Human Services secretary under Donald Trump's cabinet.
Jindal ran Louisiana's health department under Governor Mike Foster. Jindal was just 26 when he was appointed.
The Wall Street Journal listed Jindal as a possible candidate for secretary along with former presidential hopeful Ben Carson. The article posted to the Wall Street Journal's website requires a subscription to read but New Orleans-area outlets reported on the possibility of Jindal being a member of the cabinet, too.
The paper report indicates that Trump plans to have his cabinet nominated and approved within two weeks of inauguration.
After moving out of the Governor's Mansion, Jindal and his family moved to a new home in the upscale neighborhood University Club off La. 30 south fo LSU. The home sold for $817,000.
