Jindal Drops Out Of Presidential Race

After three straight debates as an undercard, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal has decided to stop.

He made the announcement during an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier.

Jindal said he was born to “believe Americans can do anything,” but that he’s come to the realization that “this is not my time.”

“Going forward, I believe we have to be the party of growth and we can never stop being the party that believes in opportunity,” Jindal said in a statement announcing his decision. “We cannot settle for the left’s view of envy and division. We have to be the party that says everyone in this country – no matter the circumstances of their birth or who their parents are – can succeed in America.”

He made the announcement official on Twitter and Facebook.

In a less crowded field, with less celebrity media hoopla, a sitting governor with conservative credentials and a compelling American success story would have received better consideration. But not in this election cycle. Best of luck, Governor Jindal, and thank you for trying.

    Another good man bites the dust. He would have made a better president than several still in the race. Let’s hope they join him soon.

    Mike, you are right. I liked Gov. Jindal a lot.
    Whoever gets the nomination would do well to consider the Gov as a potential VP.
