I’m running for President of the United States of America. Join me: http://t.co/MmqB4kxpUq— Gov. Bobby Jindal (@BobbyJindal) June 24, 2015
Jumping ahead of a planned announcement, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal tweeted his candidacy for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
Jindal becomes the first Indian-American to be a serious candidate for president, and the 13th Republican candidate seeking the 2016 nomination.
Several polls show Jindal garnering only 1% of support from Republican voters. In a recent Fox News poll, he trailed behind "None of the above" which received 2%.
