New Orleans, LA – Governor Jindal is beginning a second term with high approval ratings. He raised $15 million dollars to win the post in the primary by getting over 50 percent of the vote. The Democratic Party failed to muster a strong contender. Republicans now control seven statewide posts, as well as majorities in the state legislature. Jindal told supporters in Baton Rouge that he's committed to improving Louisiana. Analysts often speculate that Jindal could leave office before his second term is finished to pursue national ambitions.
