Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s American Future Project has hired two new staffers that could become a part of a 2016 presidential campaign team.
Politico.com reported this morning reported that Team Jindal has scooped up Bradley Engle, who has worked on campaigns for Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the Republican Governors Association, and Blaise Hazelwood, a GOP digital veteran.
American Future Project spokeswoman Gail Gitcho told Politico that both could “easily transition to the campaign should Gov. Jindal decide to run.”
Jindal’s chief political strategist, Timmy Teepell, blasted the Politico item to media this morning.
Last week, Jindal’s first hire in New Hampshire was reported and the week before, two of the governor’s top aides were transferred from the governor’s office to Iowa to work for the American Future Project.
Jindal has said he won’t announce whether he will seek the Republican presidential nomination until after the state legislative session ends in June.
