While Washington is in a state of disrepair, Republican governors are getting good things done at the state level, insists Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal.

"Republican governors are amassing great results outside the beltway," he writes in The Daily Caller. "They are taking conservative ideas, putting them into action, and it is working."

The national news media is missing that story, partly because it's not sensational, Jindal says.

"Conservative principles, when turned into actual policies, are working out in the real world," he writes. "But the dysfunction in Washington casts doubt on conservative ideas and whether they work or not."

Some Republicans are calling for the governors to be treated as party leaders, but given the media's focus on Washington and New York City, that's unlikely to happen, Jindal says.

Still, GOP governors will rise to the fore, he says.

"Republican governors don't just talk about conservative ideas, we put them into action. The answers aren't coming from Washington. Republican governors are driving the American comeback," Jindal states

"We are no longer going to outsource the Republican brand to the folks in Washington."

Unlike Republicans on Capitol Hill, GOP governors are forging through political problems to accomplish their goals, Jindal says.

"Partisan battles and legislative infighting are not unique to Washington. Every one of the 30 Republican governors faces their own challenges in every legislative session," he writes.

"We all have to work hard, with members of our own party, and members from the other party, to find solutions that work. We all do it. There is no reason the public should not expect the same in Washington."

Republican governors appreciate the party's fight against the Affordable Care Act in Washington, Jindal says. "What we don’t appreciate is Republican disunity and fratricide in Washington," he says.

"Republican governors are not going to take it anymore. We are not going to allow the Republican Party to be defined by the dysfunction in Washington."
