Jindal Giving Money To Other Candidates
Governor Bobby Jindal is spreading around the cash. With Jindal facing almost certain re-election this fall, he's decided to give some of his $8 million in campaign money to candidates he backs for their respective offices. The Republican governor gave over $190,000 to lawmakers and state education board members for the October 22nd election. His most recent campaign finance report says he gave more than 70 legislative candidates the maximum $2,500 contribution. That accounts for 13% of his spending in the latest reporting cycle.
