BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is spending two days in the key presidential campaign state of Iowa.
The Republican governor, considering a 2016 White House bid, was speaking Friday to conservative Christian pastors at an event hosted by the Iowa Renewal Project. On Saturday, Jindal planned to visit the Iowa State Fair, to volunteer at the Republican Party booth.
He also was on Saturday's lineup for the Family Leadership Summit in Ames. That event, expected to draw more than 1,000 conservative Christians, also was featuring appearances by other Republicans weighing presidential candidacies: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Jindal has made 11 trips to Iowa as governor, most recently for a June speech to the Iowa Republican State Convention.
