BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Though he was passed over for the running mate position, Gov. Bobby Jindal is back on the campaign trail for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Jindal's office said the Louisiana governor traveled to Iowa on Tuesday for "events in support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan."
The travel plans were announced by Jindal's spokeswoman less than 10 minutes before Jindal's first event in Iowa was set to begin, according to a schedule released by the Romney campaign.
Since June, Jindal has traveled to Colorado, Illinois, Utah, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa and Florida to support Romney, attending fundraisers, making speeches and shaking hands with voters.
