Texas Governor Rick Perry has officially declared his candidacy for the republican nomination for President. Governor Bobby Jindal has nothing but praise for his fellow conservative governor. Jindal says he and Perry have taken similar paths to governing their respective states. He says the country needs someone with that sort of experience in making tough decisions to cut the debt and grow the national economy. 

Even though he's a friend and a political ally of Governor Perry, Jindal says he's happy in his current job.
