Louisiana governor republican candidate Bobby Jindal announced suspension of his presidential campaign for the 2016 election. During an interview on Fox News, Jindal announced the decision and said, “It has been a great honor for me to run for president of the United States. This is not my time. I’ve come here to announce that I’m suspending my campaign for the presidency.”
The announcement prompted Dr. Ben Carson, fellow republican presidential candidate to congratulate Jindal on a campaign he should be proud of and Jeb Bush said, “Bobby Jindal is a good, conservative, policy-focused governor. Am confident he will continue to play an important role in the party.” There has been no reactions from Donald Trump yet, whom Jindal has often described as “a carnival act” and “egomaniac”.
In a recent national survey, Jindal was polling at 1% . His highest polling percentage was 6% which he achieved while trying to garner the support of Iowa state evangelist conservatives. But the headwind was not enough to secure him the more important presidential debate. His campaign was also not able to accumulate enough funds necessary to run for the president of the USA.
