Potential presidential contenders Jeb Bush and Bobby Jindal have joined forces to film a commercial promoting a new superPAC.

The former Florida governor and current Louisiana governor, who are both expected to run for the GOP nomination in 2016, are touting NewRepublican.org, which highlights the party’s vision for the future, according to Politico.

"If you believe that every parent ought to be able to choose their child’s school, and that the economy should be driven from the bottom up, not the top down from Washington, then you’re thinking like a New Republican," says Bush in the 30-second ad.

Jindal says, "If you don’t think the Republican Party should be the party of big government, big business or big anything, you’re thinking like a New Republican."

The ad will air in the Washington, D.C., area during each of the Sunday news shows this weekend, as well as nationally on Fox News Sunday, according to Politico.

Republican strategist Alex Castellanos launched the organization after Republican nominee Mitt Romney lost in 2012 to President Barack Obama.

Castellanos blamed the defeat on targeting Obama’s presidency and his policies without outlining the GOP’s own conservative agenda for America.

"Being the party that says 'Don’t touch the hot stove' only gets us so far," he told Politico. "We have to cook something. Burning the other guy’s house down is fine, but we need to build a house that gives people a better place to live."

NewRepublican has already raised $500,000 with the aid of GOP super donor Al Hoffman, who hosted a fundraiser on Thursday night at his North Palm Beach, Florida, home, Politico said.

Castellanos said he plans to air more commercials for the group over the next couple of years, leading up to the 2016 election. "We’ve got stuff in the crockpot," he said.
