Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) on Sunday said that he believes that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will run for President in 2016.
“I do think he’ll run. I think he’s been running. And I think he’ll be a meaningful and significant candidate,” Vitter said on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers.” “I think that’s very obvious to everybody who’s paying attention.”
While Vitter was confident that Jindal will make a presidential bid, the senator stopped short of endorsing him, and just stated that he respected the governor’s leadership and political views.
Vitter is weighing a run for Louisiana governor and said earlier in December that he will decide on that race in January.
