After a media blitz in New York this week, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has returned to his home state but will be heading back on the road with a trip to New Hampshire on Sunday.
Jindal has a busy travel scheduled laid out that will have him outside Louisiana for much of August. He is slated to make stops in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Iowa — where he’s been focusing much of his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination. During a recent appearance on CBS This Morning, Jindal discussed his strategy of focusing on early-voting states. New Hampshire, South Carolina and Iowa all fit that bill.
Jindal is slated to participate in the Voters First Forum, featuring several Republican candidates, at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire on Monday.
Based on Fox News’ polling-based selection process, he likely won’t make it into the first major televised GOP debate, slated to take place in Cleveland, Ohio, on Thursday, Aug. 6, but he would still be invited to participate in a second-tier forum also in Cleveland that day.
Jindal is scheduled to address the RedState Gathering in Atlanta at some point next week. A specific time hasn’t been identified on RedState’s agenda, but the gathering takes place Aug. 6-8.
Jindal will head back to Iowa, where he has been focusing his campaign efforts, on Saturday, Aug. 8. The Cerro Gordo County GOP will host rootbeer floats with Jindal, before he heads to the Hardin County GOP Sweetcorn and Gourmet Burger Feed that day.
The following week, pro-Jindal Believe Again has scheduled town hall events featuring Jindal in Marion (Aug. 10) and Iowa City (Aug. 11).
Jindal is scheduled to speak at the Iowa State Fair at noon on Saturday, Aug. 22.
He will take part in a South Carolina town hall meeting on Aug. 20, and he’s slated to also appear at town halls in Souix City, Council Bluffs and Marshalltown, Iowa, in the last two weeks of August.
