Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Wednesday that the GOP would be better off tapping a governor as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee.
Mr. Jindal said Republicans should “absolutely” take into account executive branch experience at the state level before they pick their next standard-bearer.
“I am absolutely bias towards governors,” Mr. Jindal said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “I just in general think governors are better positioned and better qualified.”
Mr. Jindal is among a number of governors, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who are pondering White House bids.
Former Govs. Jeb Bush of Florida and Mike Huckabee of Arkansas are also flirting with diving into the race.
