Jindal to Campaign For McDonnell
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a rising star in the Republican Party and potential presidential candidate in 2012, will be in Richmond tomorrow to help Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell (R) raise money for his gubernatorial campaign.
Jindal, the nation's first Indian-American governor, and McDonnell will hold a joint-press conference tomorrow afternoon and then attend a closed-door fundraiser.
Jindal's appearance is the latest sign that Virginia Republicans may be looking for something new when it comes to branding their party's image.
In the months leading up to Nov. 4 election, Virginia Republicans trotted a bunch of surrogates through the state who never seemed as if they were connecting with the state's diversifying electorate, including former U.S. Senator George Allen, actor Fred Thompson, former NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler and a slew of veterans and prisoners of war who served with Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) in Vietnam.
