Bobby Jindal to run for president`s post in 2016: Top US senator
Washington: Top Republican leader and current Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal is planning to run for president in 2016, a top US Senator from his home State has said.
"I do think, he (Jindal) will run. He is being running. He would be a significant candidate," Senator David Vitter told private American TV channel C-SPAN`s Newsmakers programme in an interview.
"I like Bobby, I respect his leadership, I agree with all of his political values. But I haven`t thought about what I would do or wouldn`t do personally," Vitter said.
"Oh yeah. I think that`s very obvious to everybody who has been paying attention," the junior Senator from Lousiana said when asked if he believes Jindal would to be president.
Jindal`s second term as the Lousiana Governor ends in 2015. He can`t run for the third term. Vitter is considering running for governor.
"I would expect we will come to a conclusion sometime in January," he said.
