Jindal Endorses Rubio for President


By    |   Saturday, 06 February 2016 10:21 AM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who dropped his bid for the GOP presidential nomination in November, said Friday night he's endorsing Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for the White House, but he does not wish to criticize others still remaining in the race.

"The reality is, these are very dangerous times," Jindal told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren  during her "On the Record" program."This president has weakened our standing on the foreign stage. Our enemies don’t fear us, our friends don’t trust us. Marco has been consistent about strengthening America’s foreign policy."

And while Van Susteren pointed out that all the candidates have said they want to strengthen national security, Jindal said there are "significant differences" and Rubio "has consistently stood up to the threat of ISIS and radical Islam."

But he said he would not criticize the other candidates on their own stances, as he has friends who are still running and he respects them.

"This election is about the future," Jindal said. "I’m an ideas guy. We have got to turn the page on the Obama Administration. I offered detailed policies through America Next on how we rebuild our economy. Marco is doing that as well."

Rubio praised Jindal in a statement, reports National Review, calling Jindal "one of the smartest people in American politics — a true expert on healthcare. He has got great leadership ideas on all sorts of public policy. He is going to be a huge asset to our campaign. I think he has a very promising future in American politics. One of the best governors in America. We’re really excited to have him on board. This is, I think, going to be a big boost to our campaign.”
