Jindal: Obama re-election won't change path in Louisiana

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal is congratulating President Barack Obama for his re-election victory, while

saying that won't change his course in Louisiana.

Jindal issued a statement that said, "Here

in Louisiana, we will continue to do what we have always done, and that

means standing

up for our people and doing what we think is right no matter who

is president."

Louisiana's governor campaigned across the country for unsuccessful GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who Jindal also

congratulated for running a "strong race."

Jindal didn't comment on what the election results mean for the future of the Republican Party, saying there's plenty of time

to do that later.
