Jindal: 'Duck Dynasty' Star Willie Robertson Would Be 'Great Running Mate'

Monday, 06 Apr 2015 05:30 PM

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who is considering a White House run, may have narrowed his choice of running mates. During a joint appearance at a Good Friday prayer breakfast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Jindal was asked about picking "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson as his side man in the coming campaign. 

"As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president—I assume that's what you're asking—not the other way around," Jindal told reporters, adding, "He's a great guy, I think he'd be a great running mate. It'd be a huge pay cut for him, so I'm not sure he'd be willing to do it."

Story continues below video.

Jindal has made no secret of his admiration for Robertson and the rest of the "Duck Dynasty" clan. His header photo on Twitter, for example, features a gathering of the Jindal and Robertson clans. 

And Jindal has often used his social media channels to draw attention to the Robertsons. 

Jindal filmed a cameo on season 6 of "Duck Dynasty," and refused to criticize patriarch Phil Robertson over a series of inflammatory comments against homosexuals, including his belief that HIV is God's punishment for "immorality." 

While the governor was clearly amused at the thought of adding his friend on the presidential ticket, the Robertsons have found a place on the Republican political stage, with Phil delivering a rather extraordinary speech after receiving the Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award at this year's CPAC convention.
