Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal announced his bid for the Republican nomination for the 2016 Presidential elections on Wednesday afternoon.
The speech centered on his Christian faith, conservative values and included pokes at his opponents on both sides of the isle.
Governor Jindal becomes the 13th person to enter the race and his current standing in the polls show that his work is cut out for him.
The first debate of the 2016 primary campaign will be on August 6th, 2015. Only the top 10 candidates will appear.
Jindal has indicated that he may not even try to enter the first debate and instead work a more grass roots campaign.
Jindal lost his first bid for Lousiana governor against Kathleen Blanco. But in 2007 he won the top seat and was re-elected with 2/3rds of the vote in 2011.
Jindal has taken up hunting, is a practicing Catholic and is now a candidate for the republican nomination for President of the United States.
