Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal delivered the keynote address Friday at a Republican fundraiser in New Hampshire — an appearance that is renewing speculation that he is eyeing a 2016 presidential bid.
Mr. Jindal, who served a term in Congress, is headlining a GOP state Senate Political Action Committee fundraiser in Manchester, where tickets are reportedly running from $1,000 to $5,000.

Steven Duprey, Republican National Committee member from New Hampshire, said that the Granite State — home to the first primary in the nation — is a good place to start laying the groundwork for a presidential run.

“For candidates who might not have as much money as some others, or who aren’t yet nationally known, this is a great time to come to New Hampshire to start to introduce themselves and to listen to what New Hampshire voters are concerned about,” Mr. Duprey said. “Anyone who thinks the Republican rules only favor the better known and better funded candidates should not complain. Instead they should come to New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada. There are lots of low fares to each of those states.”

Mr. Duprey served as the Sen. John McCain’s campaign manager during the Arizona Republican’s bid for the White House in 2008.
