Jindal Courts Christian Conservatives With Eye on 2016

McKay Coppins says that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), "the most underrated prospect in the 2016 presidential field is plotting the charm offensive that could carry him to the White House. His target: the Religious Right."

"While much of the Republican Party has written off the conservative Christian movement as a shrinking niche to be appeased but not feared, Jindal is working deliberately to consolidate their support and position himself as the election-year champion of values voters -- building relationships with Evangelical power-brokers, surrounding himself with veterans of Rick Perry's 2012 campaign, and lacing his rhetoric with culture-war calls for religious freedom."
