Television ads begin running in Iowa supporting Governor Jindal

A pro-Governor Bobby Jindal advocacy group has released a television ad in Iowa supporting his candidacy for president.  The American Future Project says the ad will run on cable television in Iowa and online for one week.


ULM Political Science Professor Joshua Stockley says the ad is indicative of Jindal's approach toward the Republican nomination and against the rest of the field.
 
"He is positioning himself, and he has been in the process of positioning himself for the last several years, as very conservative, very evangelical."

This ad comes on the heels of the governor forming an exploratory committee for a run for the presidency.  Stockley says hundreds of millions of dollars were spent in the last presidential election and is just the tip of the iceberg for Jindal.

"These are the type of advertisements that have to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on television, on radio.  He's got to have items in the newspaper."

The television ad positions Jindal as conservative Republican's leading voice in the battle over religious freedom.  At this point, Stockley feels the governor's announcement isn't speculation anymore, it's just a matter of time.

"This is just another, if you will, action toward that end."
