Washington, Mar.13: Louisiana’s Indian-origin Governor Bobby Jindal will not endorse a candidate before the results of the state’s March 24 primary.
According to CNN, Jindal, certain to be short-listed by the Republican nominee as a potential running mate, endorsed Texas Governor Rick Perry last fall and campaigned aggressively on his behalf before Perry ended his campaign in January.
The primary is only the first step in the state’s complex delegate allocation process.
The Louisiana GOP will also hold caucuses in April and a state convention in June to determine where the state’s 43 delegates will go.
Illinois, with 66 delegates at stake on March 20, looms as a more pressing contest for the candidates. (ANI)
