Bobby Jindal ends 2016 presidential campaign

by  |  published on November 18, 2015

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Tuesday in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier on “Special Report” he is suspending his presidential campaign.

Jindal said he was born to “believe Americans can do anything,” but that he’s come to the realization that “this is not my time.”

“Going forward, I believe we have to be the party of growth and we can never stop being the party that believes in opportunity,” Jindal said in a statement announcing his decision. “We cannot settle for the left’s view of envy and division. We have to be the party that says everyone in this country – no matter the circumstances of their birth or who their parents are – can succeed in America.”

    He was a well spoken individual but he had no business running. So many politicians have to large an ego to understand they are not connecting. I always thought he was running to enhance his resume. Bush, Cristy, Kasick, Ryan, and Graham, Huckabee and what ever that woman’s name should make the same decision

    I really like Bobby Jindal’s approach to the issues; but, I think he reached the right decision – “This is not (his) time.”

    He needs to give himself time for more national exposure. There is much important work that can be done by men with his abilities I’m sure his time will not be wasted.

    I wish Jeb would follow his lead…. as well as Fiorina, Huckabee, and a few more.

  • Dave N.

    I liked Bobby Jindal, but he just didn’t connect with the voters. He did make a serious gaff attacking Christy in the last debate, attack dog just didn’t work for Jindal. The GOP just needs to take the high ground and beat them to death with the facts and the really bad policies the democrats have put in place.

    “We cannot settle for the left’s view of envy and division.”
    This is WHAT THEY DO. Their “god”, Saul Alinsky taught them to keep the stupid masses divided and fighting each other so that they do not realize what is actually happening to them.
