Jindal-Robertson 2016! Duck Dynasty Goes To Washington?
by Liz Lee
It is widely expected that Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal will have a go at running for president in 2016. However, Jindal has yet to make an official announcement regarding any campaign.
Despite this, however, he did manage to toy with the idea in Cedar Rapids, Iowa while speaking at a prayer breakfast. Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame was also present as the event’s keynote speaker and was introduced by Jindal.
Jindal was asked later if he thought Robertson would make a good running mate in the 2016 presidential election. He stated:
“As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president – I assume that’s what you’re asking – not the other way around. He’s a great guy. I think he’d be a great running mate. It’d be a huge pay cut for him, so I’m not sure he’d be willing to do it.”
He also added that Robertson is “an icon, a cultural figure, and a hero of many.”
Jindal has been in Iowa in an attempt to connect with “evangelical conservative activists.” He used the speaking opportunity to also voice his disappointment in the amendments made to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana.
