Will Jindal Be The Next Vice-President?
As we draw closer to the Republican National Convention, one political expert feels Governor Bobby Jindal has a good chance of being asked to be Mitt Romney's running mate.
Veteran political consultant Roy Fletcher puts Jindal's odds at 1-in-2 because of Romney's focus on federal education reforms. Fletcher feels that Jindal's success at passing bold education reforms during this legislative session makes him a good match for Romney's campaign.
He says Mr. Jindal's ethnicity and his excellent track record with fund-raising also make him an attractive prospect for the Romney campaign.
Other names mentioned as possible Romney running mates are Ohio Senator Bob Portman, Florida's Marco Rubio and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Fletcher feels Jindal can easily bring Romney the Indian-American vote and the campaign contributions that come with them.
