According to the Des Moines Register, Jindal, who introduced Robertson at a Good Friday prayer breakfast in Iowa, called the West Monroe businessman and TV personality an “icon, a cultural figure and a hero of many.”

Asked whether that might make him a good running mate for Jindal, who is flirting with a run for president in 2016 but hasn’t made a formal announcement, the two-term Louisiana governor joked “Sure, but as vice president — I assume that’s what you’re asking — not the other way around.”

Jindal notably made an appearance on Duck Dynasty last year. He’s frequently hyped the Louisiana-set reality show, and even presented Robertson with the Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
