Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal hasn’t announced a run for the 2016 presidential nomination, but he told ABC News that, if he does run, Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” will be in the running to become his campaign theme song.
“It’s about an underdog taking on big challenges,” Jindal reportedly told ABC News in an interview at CPAC last week. “I think we need a candidate who’s going to fight for us, fight for our principles, and have fun doing it.”
Jindal’s potential campaign hasn’t gained a ton of traction, despite lots of travel and attempts to grab headlines in recent weeks.
Jindal spent part of last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference, but came in 12th in the event’s annual straw poll. This weekend, he courted conservative donors at the winter meeting of the Club for Growth in Palm Beach, Florida.
In a new column, conservative commentator, radio host and Louisiana native Erick Erickson, who has been a supporter of Jindal, argues that the term-limited governor’s recent tactics could hurt any presidential aspirations he might harbor.
“I think Jindal has a path forward, but the one he has chosen degrades all his accomplishments and leaves him looking less than the bright light he is,” Erickson writes.
Jindal will be hitting up the Republican National Committee’s donor retreat in Boca Raton, Florida, later this month, according to The Washington Post. He has additional appearances lined up in Iowa, New Hampshire, Georgia and Tennessee in the coming weeks.
