Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who has hinted that he is interested in a 2016 presidential run, made his mark in national politics as the first Indian-American to be elected to the position of governor in the U.S.

Recently, Jindal stirred up controversy for his plans to attend a nondenominational prayer event called "The Response - Louisiana" by the American Family Association (AFA), a group which those protesting the event have characterized as an "extremist" evangelical group which blames abortion and gay rights for natural disasters.

Three political pundits recently expressed their opinions of Jindal's character:

Michael Farris, chancellor of Patrick Henry College and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, wrote in a Facebook post:

"Bobby Jindal is getting attacked by the left for his willingness to participate in a public prayer service called The Response … The left's typical drivel about hate speech and divisiveness are their talking points.

"As we begin the process of watching candidates for 2016, the willingness to endure the attacks of the left for standing true to God ought to be near the top of the list of things we admire," Farris wrote.

Bryan Fischer, a leader in public policy for the AFA: "We certainly see Gov. Jindal as one of those political leaders that shares our allegiance to Judeo-Christian values. We see him as a leader who wants to see those values incorporated into American public life."

The Des Moines Register ranked Jindal fifth amongst the 15 possible Republican candidates who have spent the most time in Iowa.

"Jindal, who is finishing his second term as governor, has a strong press machine that cranks out alerts about his speeches, his newspaper op-eds, what he's been up to in Louisiana all week, and his latest releases of national policy plans," the newspaper's Jennifer Jacobs wrote.
