Bobby Jindal Says He Will Vote Trump as Best of Bad Choices

Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who has harshly criticized Donald Trump, said he would vote for the presumptive Republican candidate despite serious concerns about him.

In an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal, Jindal wrote, "I think electing Donald Trump would be the second-worst thing we could do this November, better only than electing Hillary Clinton to serve as the third term for the Obama administration's radical policies."

Jindal, who dropped out of the race for the Republican nominee in November, said he has not suddenly changed his views on Trump.

"I worked harder than most, with little apparent effect, to stop his ascendancy," he wrote in the op-ed. "I have not experienced a sudden epiphany and am not here to detail an evolution in my perspective."

In an interview with CNN, Jindal said he didn't think Trump would actually win the election in November, but he had to admit the real estate mogul did a good job of understanding the frustrations of voters with both the Obama administration and the Republican leadership.

Jindal's backing of Trump comes as other prominent Republicans, such as Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, have said they will not vote for him. Many others have said that, as a sign of their dissatisfaction with the nominee, they will not attend the Republican National Convention in July.
