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.
