Bobby Jindal: I Will Decide in 2015 Whether to Run for President
"I’m thinking more likely sometime next calendar year, so certainly not December. It may not even be as early as January," Jindal told nationally syndicated talk show host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday. "So it’s sometime early next year."
Jindal touted his record as the Republican governor of Louisiana, comparing himself to President Barack Obama when he first ran in 2008.
"I’ve actually, unlike the president, I’ve actually run something, both not only as governor, but previously to that," he said.
"We can show that we’ve turned around our economy," he said. "We’ve showed that we cut our state budget 26 percent. We have cut taxes. We've not raised taxes. We cut 28,000 state government jobs, [we have] a booming private sector economy, more people working than ever before, and an economy that’s grown twice as fast as the national economy."
