WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins, a former Louisiana legislator, released the following statement regarding the decision by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to suspend his campaign for president:
"There is no question that Governor Bobby Jindal played a key part in shaping the 2016 presidential primary. Governor Jindal's keen intellect, combined with his passion to uphold the principles and ideals that have made America an exceptional nation, made him an attractive candidate for president. But as Bobby said today, it is not his time.
"I look forward to working with Governor Jindal as he will no doubt continue to have a shaping influence on American politics and the Republican Party," concluded Perkins.
