Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Wednesday he would seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. In a speech in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner, La., he promised bold action and an unabashed conservative reform agenda.
Jindal came out swinging with a jab at his presidential rivals, telling supporters, “There are a lot of great talkers running for president.” But he added, “None of them—not one can match our record [in Louisiana] of actually shrinking the size of government.”
