BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is spending two days in the key presidential campaign state of Iowa.
The Republican governor, who is considering a 2016 White House bid, was speaking Friday to conservative Christian pastors at an event hosted by the Iowa Renewal Project. On Saturday, Jindal planned to visit the Iowa State Fair, to volunteer at the state Republican Party booth.
He also was on Saturday's lineup for the Family Leadership Summit in Ames. That event, expected to draw more than 1,000 conservative Christians, was featuring appearances by other Republicans weighing presidential candidacies, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Over the two days, Jindal also was attending events with a local GOP congressional candidate, Marionette Miller Meeks, and with Republican Congressman Steve King.
Jindal has made 11 trips to Iowa as governor, most recently for a June speech in Des Moines to the Iowa Republican State Convention.
The governor's office said Jindal was returning to Baton Rouge on Sunday.
