Practicing for Iowa?

Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2008 at 3:58 PM

Here’s an interesting twist to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s plans to jet up to the cornfields of Iowa this month to speak to the Family Policy Center, a conservative Christian group: Iowa’s first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses fit Jindal’s 2007 gubernatorial campaign strategy like a glove. Recall that Jindal eschewed debates as long as possible and focused instead on a media campaign and face-to-face gatherings — particularly folksy meetings in many of Louisiana’s small, rural towns. That’s exactly the kind of campaign that presidential hopefuls are required to wage to succeed in Iowa. Was Jindal honing his skills in 2007, or was that just a coincidence? BobbyWatch has officially begun. — Clancy DuBos
