Jindal says McConnell should step down
WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal is calling on the GOP's top senator to step down.
The Louisiana governor told The Associated Press on Friday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should follow the lead of House Speaker John Boehner, who announced earlier in the day plans to resign.
Jindal says it's time for "a clean slate" of Republican leaders in Congress.
The Louisiana governor has struggled to stand out in the crowded Republican presidential field. He's been increasingly critical of the GOP establishment in recent weeks.
Jindal calls congressional Republicans "the surrender caucus." He says Boehner and McConnell "need to surrender their gavels" to make room for "someone who is willing to fight to protect our conservative ideals." He also later tweeted out a message to "fire everyone in Washington, D. C."
