The 30 Republican governors in the U.S. are getting results that Washington, DC, would do well to emulate, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Tuesday.

"We've done the policies. Now it's about calling attention to the policy results," the Republican governor and chairman of the Republican Governors Association told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"If you want to see school choice, balanced budgets, tax cuts, folks taking on public pension, governors taking on the government unions, it's happening in state capitals," Jindal said.

Voters are seeing positive results with Republican governors at the helm in states with either primarily Republican or Democratic constituents, Jindal said. The Louisiana Republican is a potential presidential candidate for 2016.

"You've got Republican governors in red states and in blue states doing amazing reforms. I think what voters are saying is, 'Show us the results,'" he said.

"The reason they're doing so well in blue states[and] red states, is, in part, voters see the results. They see the improving schools. They see the improving economies. They see the improving government finances. They see that governors are making the tough choices," he added.

Jindal maintained the conservative brand has taken a hit from politics at the national level.

"We're going to stop outsourcing our brand in Washington, DC. Because, if you want to see conservative ideas being applied, it's not happening in DC," Jindal said.

Voters are frustrated with the policies and dysfunction on display in national politics, Jindal indicated.

"I think there's a lot of just general frustration at the dysfunction in DC. I think there's also a lot of frustration in the lack of leadership coming out of the White House. It doesn't have to be that way," he said.
