Popular Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal repeated his claim that he won’t seek the Republican Party’s nomination to run against President Barack Obama in 2012, Fosters Daily Democrat reported
. During a campaign stump for GOP gubernatorial candidate John Stephen, R-N.H., in the nation’s first primary state, Jindal said he would not run for the nation’s highest office and, instead, stressed the importance of the upcoming midterm elections.
"I'm not running in 2012,” Jindal said during a visit to Salient Surgical Technologies. “We have a lot more work to do [in Louisiana]."
Some political insiders believe Jindal may be on a short list of possible vice-presidential running mates in 2012, while others think he may even run against Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., in 2014. For his part, Jindal said he is focused only on supporting fiscally conservative candidates in the midterm elections and his re-election campaign in 2011.
