Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is expected to announce Wednesday that he’s running for president, then he will jet off to early-voting states New Hampshire and Iowa for events.
On Thursday, Jindal will speak at the Politics & Eggs luncheon hosted by The New Hampshire Institute of Politics and The New England Council at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H.
