Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal might have done a series of push ups, however he failed to make it to the Top 10 list of Republican Presidential hopefuls who would slug it out on first primetime TV debate.
Washington: Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal might have done a series of push ups, however he failed to make it to the Top 10 list of Republican Presidential hopefuls who would slug it out on first primetime TV debate.
The Top Ten list for the most popular Republicans was selected by the Fox News based on five national polls, however Bobby Jindal along with six other Republicans failed to be on the list.
Out of 17 Republicans bidding for 2016 White House race, the top ten led by Donald Trump will be debating on Fox News at 9 pm on Thursday night while Bobby Jindal and six others will be the part of an earlier one-hour debate at 5 pm.
The top 10 participants in the August 6 Republican presidential prime time debate on Fox News are:
Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and John Kasich, Fox News said.
While the remaining seven set to meet at a secondary forum, are:
Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Jim Gilmore and George Pataki.
Mr Jindal's campaign, however, brushed off the concerns about not making it to the prime time debate.
"This first votes will be cast in Iowa at the beginning of February. This nomination will be earned, not bought," Shannon Dirmann, spokeswoman for the Jindal campaign, was quoted as saying.
Also, Jindal appeared in a Buzzfeed video, flexing muscles and doing literal push-ups on issues like taxes, Obamacare, hyphenated Americans , etc.
