Gov. Bobby Jindal ➠ GOP Candidate Should Be A Conservative Governor
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a possible Republican presidential candidate, appeared on “Fox and Friends” this morning to react to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz becoming the first major politician to enter the 2016 race.
Jindal said he has a legislative session that runs through June 11, and he will make a decision about his possible candidacy after that.
“I do tend to think our nominee – and I’ve been saying this for a while – should be a reform-minded, a conservative governor, somebody who’s got a proven track record,” Jindal said.
“I think what people want to hear is a candidate that’s going to say, ‘I’m going to take on the threat of radical Islamic terrorism. Forget the political correctness,’ Jindal said. “We need a candidate that says, ‘I’m going to cut the size of government,’ not just slow down the rate of the growth, actually balance the budget. We need a candidate that says, ‘I’m going to get rid of all of Obamacare.’”
“We need to win this election, not just for the Republican party, for the sake of our country. We can’t afford four more years. We need a major course correction.”
