Jindal Airs First Ad Of Gubernatorial Campaign

March 16, 2011

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) still has no opponent for this year's gubernatorial race, but he's releasing his first television ad on Thursday, a spot touting his record on job creation and opposition to raising taxes.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that the ad will run in media markets around the state and the buy is in the six figures.

"Our economy has certainly done better than the region and the country's economy but we are impacted by this national recession," Jindal says in the ad. "We can't get complacent, we can't be satisfied with the progress we've made."

Jindal concludes the ad by saying, "My number one job is creating jobs. That's why we're forcing government to do more with less. I've made it very clear - as Governor we are not raising taxes in the state of Louisiana."

Jindal has been aggressively fundraising, and had $9.2 million cash on hand at the end of last year. On the Democratic side, 2010 lieutenant governor nominee Caroline Fayard (D) has recently been mentioned as a potential opponent.
