Jindal heads for Nebraska

Gov. Bobby Jindal will be in Nebraska stumping for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney this weekend while other governors are in Virginia discussing job creation.

The governor’s press office confirmed Friday that Jindal will skip the National Governors Association’s 104th annual meeting in Williamsburg, Va. The meeting’s focus is job creation and economic development.

“The Governor will be addressing the Nebraska Republican Party State Convention in support of Governor Romney on Saturday,” Jindal’s spokeswoman, Shannon Bates, said by email.
