And then there were thirteen.
Today Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal threw his hat in the ring as a Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential race.
I’ve got to admit it was a surprise when I learned last night that Jindal planned to make his announcement today because, even though he had made noises in the past of considering a run, it was not something I had heard recently. Maybe I just wasn’t listening in the right places.
Irregardless, he’s in as the GOP field continues to grow. According to the Washington Post (see Bobby Jindal announces entry into 2016 presidential race), his planned Wednesday afternoon announcement was scooped by himself when he posted on Twitter: “I’m running for President of the United States of America.

Who will be next? I’m hearing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may be planning to announce next week. Stay tuned….
