And So It Begins

Bill Barrow of the Times-Picayune reports today that fund raising for Governor Bobby Jindal's presidential campaign has begun with the forming of a federal political action committee by a group of his supporters. From the article:
The governor is aware of the operations of Jindal For President Draft Council Inc., but is not directly involved, according to organizers Rama Mohanty, a Southern University professor, and Dan Kyle, a former legislative auditor and failed GOP candidate in several bids for office."They are supportive of what we are doing," Mohanty said of the Jindal team. That was followed by this statement from a spokesman for the Governor's office:
Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin said, "The governor has said that he has the job he wants, and he hopes to be re-elected (in 2011) to continue to move Louisiana forward." He added, "It's flattering, but the governor does not support this effort. This is a distraction from the critical issues that we face, and the governor will not be involved in any capacity."

Figure it out for yourself here.
