We Won’t Have Bobby Jindal To Kick Around Anymore
Bobby Jindal is the latest candidate to drop out of the race for the Republican Presidential nomination:
WASHINGTON — Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, a onetime rising Republican star whose popularity has plummeted in his own state, abruptly dropped out of the presidential race on Tuesday, conceding that he was unable to find any traction.
“This is not my time,” he said on Fox News.
Mr. Jindal unveiled a series of policy proposals, ferociously attacked Donald J. Trump and spent considerable time courting conservatives in Iowa, which begins the presidential nominating process. None of it worked. He raised little money, did not rise high enough in the polls to appear on the prime-time debate stage and was overshadowed by unconventional candidates such as Mr. Trump and Ben Carson.
In withdrawing, Mr. Jindal alluded to his parents’ emigration to the United States from India 45 years ago.
“I don’t think in a million years they would have ever imagined that I’d be governor or one day I’d be running for president of the United States,” he said.
But, he said, “I’ve come to the realization this is not my time.”
It never was your time Bobby, it never was your time.
